For this question, I was left with answer choices (B) and (E).
Why can't answer (B) be true?

Hi LSAT 2018,
According to the rules you would end up with: PYRPYR___ 123456789 You need to get all the colors into any 8 bead strand so you need to add an Orange and Green. You can't put the Orange next to the Red so Orange has to be in the 8th spot with Green in the 7th. Hope that helps! Malila
Hi there, I also narrowed down to B and E and didn’t understand why E is correct. You can’t put orange next to red, but why couldn’t you have GGO in positions 7, 8, and 9? So it would be:
PYRPYRGGO 123456789 That satisfies the requirement that all colors are used, separates red and organge, and double beads are allowed as long as they’re green. Any help would be much appreciated!
Hi clem,
The last rule states that there must be at least one bead of each color in any 8 consecutive beads. In the 9bead strand you posited, there is no orange bead in the first 8 beads.
AHA. That makes sense now — thank you for the help and the quick reply!
