                                          For every $p, d$ with $d\geq n+1$, can we find hypersurface over $\mathbb{F}_{p}$ of degree $d$ in $\mathbb{P}^{n}$ such that either $\# X \not\equiv 1 \text{mod} p$ or $X$ is not rationally connected?

                                                          Characterize a variety $X$ over $\text{Spec}\mathbb{Z}$ such that the indecomposable summands of $F_{*}\mathcal{O}_{X}$ have universally bounded rank.
                                                            • Problem 9.75.

                                                              If $X$ is separably rationally connected, there exists $N(\text{dim} X, \text{deg} X, m)$ such that, for any $p_{1},\cdots, p_{m}\in X(\mathbb{F}_{p})$, there exists a rational curve $C$ defined over $\mathbb{F}_{p^{N}}$ containing all $p_{i}$. (due to Kollar) Can you do this without lifting the cardinality of field tend to $\infty$? Let $X$ be a cubic surface over $\mathbb{F}_{q}$. Can you find a rational curve defined over $\mathbb{F}_{q}$ through each point?
