I've added reasonable to the subject.

My issue with "sufficient" is with the use of it outside of class or in class discussing some matter where the word "sufficient" has no part of the conversation whatsoever.

Do people in your school use "reasonable" when they are discussing whether to goto starbucks after class?

What about the combination of the words.

Q: Do you want to get a cup of coffee before our next class?

A: I think one cup will be reasonable and sufficient to get me through the next class.

Death to Tyrants.

Even better, let's combine them all, "It is, like, reasonably forseeable that like, a cup of coffee would be, like, sufficient to get me through the next class."

But, I think it is sufficient that a reasonable person should know to a substantial certainty that coffee during class will cause them to have to intrupt the class to get up and go to the bathroom.

Good point, that being the case the reasonable person should forsee the extreme likelihood of said event and thus should only drink a sufficient amount to keep them awake and not a substantial amount which would cause them to like piss their pants.
