This problem stumped an entire Honors Geometry class.

Draw a diagram in which the intersection of angle AEF and angle
DPC is ray ED.

Hi there!  What about a diagram like this:

              C 
              \      E          D/F
               \-----&&&&&&&&&&&& 
               P     +
                     +
                     +
                     +
                     +
                     A

       + is AEF
       - is DPC
       & is both

I think this works.  What do you think?
