I suppose: "What are static_cast<> and reinterpret_cast<> *really*
supposed to do??" isn't sufficiently well-formed? ;)

How about this:

1) Under what circumstances does the following produce defined


A) Any time p's value points to an actual T, or is null, or T = void
B) Only when p is of type char* and points to an actual T, or is null,
        or T = void
C) Never
D) Other

2) Under what circumstances is the following equivalent to the


A) Always
B) Implementation-defined
C) Never
D) Other

Is that a reasonable statement of the problem?
