Everyone in the class knew Billy did not deserve the grade but they did not know how the professor graded.

Was the grade lower than he deserved? Higher? Or was it a grade in a class he hadn't attended at all?

did Billy do anything relevant to merit a higher grade?

If so, was it related to the subject the grade was for?

Did Billy bribe the professor?

Did the professor grade based on an exam? If yes, did the professor really check how Billy worked on the exam? Pretended to?

I asked If yes, the prof. graded based on it and your answer was an Yope. Do you mean the prof. did grade based on his assignment, but not on the content of it?

Did the prof. just grade based on the cover of it?
because it is beautiful?

This puzzle reminds me of a true story that a prof. graded based on how far a student's answer sheet could fly on the gust of a fan.

****************************************SPOILER*******************************************
Close enough, Roger, The assignment was an essay question, our Billy did not know the answer and tried to bluff his was through by being verbose. His response was several pages. Our lazy prof stood at the top of the stairs and threw the papers down the stairs the ones that went the furthest got the better grade. Billy's was the heaviest.
