- One outfit (unspecified rarity)
Potential maximum rewards, all questions passed:
- Nuka-Cola Quantum

|Where is the rest of the class?
I guess they heard about the pop quiz.
|8||Right! Good start.|
|9||Wrong! That's going to hurt your grade.|
|Who needs math anyway?||If you want to pass this course, you do.|
|Still here? I guess this quiz is too easy for you.
Let's try something harder.
|23||Wrong! Do you even know what a prime number is?|
|27||Hmmph. I guess you got that one right.|
|The only prime I want is a prime rib.||That's it. Detention for a week!|
|So, a real smart guy, eh? I bet I can stump you.
What is the square root of 289?
|19||Hah! You failed this pop quiz.|
|17||You're smarter than you look.|
|Who cares?||Then I guess you flunk this course.|
