    This should be in the quizzes forum.

    Most probable scenario
    To combat the direct rays of the sun, you place the plastic over you. Thirst is quenched by sipping from the can of water. Hunger is satisfied with the C rations. You notice a plane flying overhead, so you pour some oil/gas onto the waters and light it. A plane flies overhead during the day, you use your mirror to shine a reflection of the sun to catch their attention. To get the tarp in a protective location, you tie it down with the rope
    You have endured many hazards with little harm to your health. Your thoughts turn towards finding means of protecting yourself from exposure. After days of waiting for rescue, you still have your stamina! You are noticed and rescued! The plane sees the reflected light and identifies you, you have been found!

    Got it in 3, though I still think that the Fishing Kit is very important.

    Most probable scenario
    You have isolated exactly where you are, and you plan a trajectory to take you to safe shores. You are able to determine what direction your are going, but your attempts change directions are adversely prevented by the ocean currents. After covering the body with the repellent, survivors try to relax with a dip in the ocean Everyone complains about the sunburns, and attempts to don things to protect themselves from exposure to the sun. As you drink from the ocean, your tongue swells from the saltwater. The mosquito netting is used to catch fish, but is ripped apart and tossed instead. Hunger sets in, you look for things to chew. You notice a plane flying overhead during the evening, But you cannot get their attention. Out of fear you drink the rum The cushion is used to keep people afloat while getting refreshed in the ocean
    No matter what you do, you cannot navigate your raft to safe shores. Out of frustration, the sextant is tossed overboard. No one attempts to retrieve it. Sharks kill most of the survivors. Everyone has burned skin and needs medical attention! One dies of suffocation of their swelled tongue. Thoughts of real food impede your attempts to stay focused on the problem at hand! The night plane flies overhead, but does not see you! You pass out and the next day die of exposure! A shark attacks the crew member using the cushion


    Your overall survival IQ is -43.
    Your ability to stay alive is -54%
    Your ability to protect yourself from the elements is -39%
    Your ability to catch the attention of your rescuers is -36%

    Most probable scenario
    To combat the direct rays of the sun, you place the plastic over you. Thirst is quenched by sipping from the can of water. No fish are caught, seems to be a bad area for fishing! Hunger is satisfied with the C rations. You notice a plane flying overhead, so you pour some oil/gas onto the waters and light it. A plane flies overhead during the day, you use your mirror to shine a reflection of the sun to catch their attention.
    You have endured many hazards with little harm to your health. Your thoughts turn towards finding means of protecting yourself from exposure. The fish caught have not been suitable for eating, your rations continue to deminish. After days of waiting for rescue, you still have your stamina! You are noticed and rescued! The plane sees the reflected light and identifies you, you have been found!
