B was the right answer." and he ignored my point completely that either you have to consider Tritium and Deuterium as hydrogen, or you have to tell the student to rule them out...
Ah, yes! I had a chemistry perfesser that thought the world revolved around him. He was actually the dean of the chemistry department, so that may have explained a lot. "This is the way it is, because I said so" was surely his creedo. Dude was a real jerk, all filled up with his acedemia. Unfortunately, you're going to run into these types every now and then.

Is this dude actually a PhD, or a grad student?
