      okay. Flip a 4-sided coin, lol. - Getting rid of 1 or 2 possibilities increases one's chances of guessing correctly !!  { I really object to all of these newbies who want us to do their homework. - especially when they show no work or thinking process.}

    Well, you do get caffeine headaches if you stop drinking your regular amount of coffee or caffeinated soda, so I guess that could be considered withdrawal.
