Question: When a TLC plate ws developed, the solvent front ran off the top of the plate. What should be done to correct the error.

Me: The only reason I'm giving you this question to check is that it seems too simple. My answer would be to stop development before the solvent gets too high on the plate.

That would be my answer. Another say of saying to pay closer attention.
