If you do this in five seconds, you earn a point. Instead of using points, Rohan and Pawan used pieces of popcorn. After a certain amount of time, Rohan had seventeen pieces, while Pawan only had eleven. After more time, Rohan doubled his amount, while Pawan tripled his amount! After even more time, Rohan gained seven pieces, while Pawan gained only four.
