Brain Game: If you could add a new rule to all social media platforms, what would it be?

1. Become a soccer star

Manchester United has been my favourite football club since I was a child. I will call up their manager, Alex Ferguson, and ask him for a trial. It would be a dream come true to play at Old Trafford alongside world-class strikers Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie.

2. End world hunger

It would take a lot of time and effort, but knowing that everyone in the world will sleep with a full stomach would satisfy me.

Jade Lam

3. Speedy exams

Knowing that I will score full marks anyway, I would write two HKDSE papers at once, one with each hand. This way I can shorten the exam period by half!

Kate Ng

4. Being lazy

As I'd be certain I could be lazy, I'd spend the whole day in bed with the curtains closed, eating chips!

5. Ride a bicycle round the world

My dad wants to go around China on a bike when he retires. I guess I'd go one step further and take my bike all over the world. I could stop in any city I wanted and try out all sorts of delicacies.

6. Become an exam machine

I would sit all the tests I could think of, be it the Diploma of Secondary Education, the Scholastic Aptitude Test or the Graduate Record Exam - just to prove my extraordinary abilities.

Heidi Kwan

7. Taste the best food in the world

I would eat whatever I wanted without getting fat.

Nicole Hurip

8. Becoming Eponine

I would star as Eponine in Les Miserables. Her ragged, selfless character intrigues me. On My Own is also the most heartbreaking song, and I always lip-synch along with it.

Jade Chan

9. Learn to cook

I'd probably pick up cooking again after failing miserably with the burnt carbonara last time.

Lau Chun-kit

10. Back to school

I would go back to obedience school and make a second attempt to pass all my tests.
