Firstly I was finished university since 10 years ago.
Secondaly I remember a lot of cases but I will to talk of one case only when I was at lecture - any lecture- I was ask professor a lot and he was always answered me.

The last lecture that I attended, was one year ago when I was a student.
I can remember one case when I had difficulty understand the payable and receivable accounts, and I couldn't know the difference between them. I asked my professor to found time to explain it with more examples, and he did it. He was satisfied with my question and interest to learn, so he approached me and explained it in detail. I still remember his advice and lectures about accounting.

My last lecture was 3 years ago when I studied Master about Chemistry. At that time, I didn't know how to use the chemical equipment so my professor gave me some instructions. She explained it to me step by step, clearly, slowly. Then, I could do it right away.

There's a missing number in Fibonacci sequence: 1,1,2,3,5... in the question

Hello kbravoz,

The question asks about a particular sequence ('in this Fibonacci sequence'), so it is not intended to be complete.

The last lecture was on ecological problems delivered by prof. Hanns Moschamer from Austria where I was an interpreter. It was very clear, intersting and useful.

My last lecture at the university was over 15 years ago so it's quite difficult to remember what it was about )) Honestly, it's not difficult - it's impossible. But I think it was something special, you know. After those five long years with so many lectures, so many subjects to learn, so many exams to pass, and you finally got the very last lecture. I think we were happy and sad at the same time. Happy because no more lectures and sad because that was the end of our funny and careless students life.

The last lecture i went to was at the university, and there were professors who explained very well and also there were professors who did not explain well.
