"The Three Questions" (三つの問題, Mittsu no Mondai) is episode 396 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.

Summary

All the arriving genin wait in line for the first part of the exams. Konohamaru, disappointed that Naruto would not be attending the latest Chūnin Exams and in fear this may result in him never becoming a chūnin, disguises himself as the latter to participate, but is exposed and consoled by Neji. All the participating genin are placed in three separate rooms to take the test, which was concocted by Shikamaru. The scores of the three members are added to make the score of the team. Should any of them get a score higher than 100 or lower than the average of all the teams, they fail the test. The test reads,

Choose and answer any one of the following three questions.

(For 30 points) While protecting a VIP, which position of the formation should the target to be protected generally be placed in? Choose from the following. A)The front B)The centre C)The tail end

(For 40 points) While facing an opponent possessing change in nature of fire and lightning, choose the ninjutsu attribute one can expect the best effect from from the following options. A)Wind style B)Earth style C)Water style

(For 50 points) In a local battle, illustrate the merits and demerits in the case of attacking from high ground.

The genin of each room try to deduce Shikamaru's test, and as they do, Sakura and Neji coming to the conclusion that all members of each team must equal the required score to pass. With that, Neji starts walking around the room, catching the others' attention.
