They are mini cases. They might have a few short behavioral questions at the end too if I remember correctly.

Hi Anonymous, thank you - would you be open to providing some examples of these mini cases? E.g. are they market sizing ones, or as another example a question on how you would structure the case? — Bryan on Mar 02, 2018
