People are waiting in line to board a 100-seat airplane.
Soham is the first person in the line.
He gets on the plane but suddenly can’t remember what his seat number is, so he picks a seat at random.
After that, each person who gets on the plane sits in their assigned seat if it’s available, otherwise they will choose an open seat at random to sit in.
