Suppose that a deed was made out to "John and Mary Smith, husband and wife"; with no mention as to how they were taking title. Which would Michigan law presume: joint tenancy, tenancy in common, tenancy by the entirety, or community property? Why?

by the entirety, because that is what husband and wife ownership is in Michigan. It works the same as joint tenancy.
