A hires and pays B $500 to build an ugly fountain on A's property. The fountain would lower the value of the property. The fountain costs more than expected to build, and B stops halfway after spending the money. A sues. How much should A get?

The first question that needs to be asked is why the fountain cost more than the estimate. If the reasons are legitimate, party A either pays for completion at an increased amount or gets the work they paid for. If it's because B was negligent, A may pay something but not the entire amount.

It also depends on how the contract was written. This question can't be answered without more information.

This is the most stupid poll I’ve ever seen.

It's definitely close. There is no way to answer this question with the information provided.
