A wise old king has no sons or daughters to leave his kingdom to, but he has 11 nieces and nephews.  He decides to test them to see which one is worthy to rule his kingdom after he dies.  He gives each one a pot of dirt and a seed and says, “Here is a chance to prove yourself.  You must plant this seed and honestly nurture it with no help from your parents or your friends.  In one year, I will see who has done the best job, and he or she will inherit the kingdom.
One year later, each of the nieces and nephews brings their plants back to the king.  Some have flourished, some are doing well, a couple are sickly and one pot has no plant at all.  The king says, “I now know who will inherit my kingdom.”  Who does he give his kingdom to, and why?
