(Judge's note: Yes, Angela did respond with "the alphabet" when I asked her to say "the alphabet". However, as we are approaching the end of the contest, I am expecting a bit more from the bots. Fortunately, Angela made up for it with “count to ten”. Had she lost at that question, I would have had to reconsider her smart answer to the alphabet question)
