2. ... Ma'aser Rishon?
3. ... Ma'aser Sheni or Hekdesh?
(b) If the Chulin into which the Terumah fell was Tamei, the Kohen must be careful to prepare it in a way that it does not come into contact with water (dry or in as pop-corn). Is there any way that he can eat it in the form of ...

2. ... bread (as if the Chulin was Tahor)?
(c) What else must the owner remember to do in a case where the Terumah fell into Ma'aser Rishon that was Tamei?

(a) According to Beis Shamai, one Sa'ah of Tamei Terumah that falls into a hundred Sa'ah of Tahor Terumah does not become Batel. What do Beis Hillel say?
(b) Beis Hillel's initial reasoning is based on a 'Mah Matzinu'. Which 'Mah Matzinu'?
(c) How did Beis ...
1. ... Shamai counter that argument? What distinction did they draw between Chulin being Mevatel Terumah and Terumah Tehorah being Mevatel Teumah Temei'ah?
2. ... Hillel finally convince Beis Shamai that it does become Batel? What 'Kal-va'Chomer' did they Darshen?
(a) After Beis Shamai retracted, Rebbi Eliezer said that should such a case occur, the Kohen is obligated to take out one hundredth. What must he do with it?
(b) What do the Chachamim say?
(a) According to Rebbi Eliezer, if the Sa'ah of Terumah which fell into a hundred Sa'ah of Chulin, and which the owner duly removed, fell into less than a hundred Sa'ah of Chulin, it becomes Asur (Dimu'a). Why is that?
(b) What do the Chachamim (from the Beis Shamai) say?
(a) What does Rebbi Eliezer say about a Sa'ah of Terumah that fell into less than a hundred Sa'ah of Chulin, if some of the Dimu'a (a Sa'ah, say) fell into another batch of Chulin?
(b) What do the Chachamim say ...

(a) The Mishnah discusses a case where, after removing the Sa'ah of Terumah that fell into a hundred Sa'in of Chulin, another one fell in. What did the owner do before that happened?

(a) What does the Tana say in a case where the second Sa'ah fell in before the owner had a chance to remove the first Sa'ah?
(b) On what grounds does Rebbi Shimon disagree with the Tana Kama?
(c) In which case will he therefore concede that it is Asur?
(d) Like whom is the Halachah?
(a) In a case where a Sa'ah of Terumah fell into a hundred Sa'in of Chulin, and after the owner ground them (see Tosfos Yom-Tov), (in one go), there are less than a hundred and one Sa'ah, the Mishnah rules that the flour is nevertheless permitted to a Zar. Why is that?
(b) What will be the Din in a case where the Sa'ah fell into less that hundred Sa'in and after grinding, the owner discovers that there are now a hundred and one Sa'in?
(c) Under which circumstances will the mixture be permitted?
(d) Is it permitted to grind the mixture Lechatchilah?

(b) What is the reason for this ruling?
