4. Damon's answer does indicate how many do not buy their lunch in the cafeteria.

Your series of questions indicates there may be students who bring their lunch who do not bring it from home.

Maybe they ripped off a convenience store on the way to school. Maybe they stole some other kid's lunch in the hallway. Maybe they stopped for breakfast at a diner and brought the leftovers as their lunch.

Gotta be more precise, guy...
