The electrical engineer suggested (3) stripping down the electronics of the car and trying (4) to trace where a fault might have (5) occurred. The chemical engineer, not knowing much about cars, suggested that maybe (6) the fuel was getting (7) blocked somewhere. Then, the Microsoft engineer, not knowing much about anything, came up with a suggestion, (8) “Why don't we close all the windows, get out, get back in, open the windows again, and maybe it'll work!” (1) an expert in electricity and electrical systems
