I agree with the reply. Trying to find a one-size fits all approach is usually never the correct answer. If you really want to be a good developer, C# or otherwise, you need to figure out when something is appropriate, not memorize lists of solutions that other people have decided you should use all of the time. Taking 2 for example, maybe there's an issue if the collection is empty (i.e. it should always have items in it), and letting First throw an exception would help you figure out the problem faster than getting back a null or an exception later on.
