That is not it, and you did not. Please pay attention: given your assertion 
that a race condition is a defect that causes an abnormal execution of the 
program during which the program sees abnormal, incorrect states (read: 
variable values) it should be easy for you to craft a program that shows 
evidence of that by either printing those values, or aborting upon detecting 
them, etc.
