Question 4: Every game has some rules. The game is played according to those rules. Let us see what happens if the rules are changed.

Answer: We introduced new rules in the musical chair game, like the player who misses a chance to sit on a chair gets two more chances to remain in the game. Such a change made our game last for a longer time.
