well one answer is obviously "2nd place"

but the other answer should be.. "d same place" .. coz if u r a lap down, then u just pass... technically ur not front of him... ur just in the "same place"

(A) I presume you are reffering to an athletic track event.

(B) You are running for a bus with prepaid ticket.

© You were entered for Shotput.

Lets take (A) in the first place, if, as I imagine, its not just a sprint more of a marathon , so many times around the track etc, then it could well be that the second place person has already outpaced you.

So (B) , if you have´nt got 1st ticket there´s no point running ahead of the 2nd ticket.

And © , if you´re entered for shotput you`re in the wrong place.
