I have a quick question regarding the first rule of this game.
What does it mean that "adjacent houses are of different styles"

So far my set up is roughly

7 8
5 6
3 4
1 2

suppose that 3 is R then does it mean that 4 must be T according to the third condition? or is it that if 3 is R then 1, and 4 can both be T . In other words, does adjacency applies to houses that are across to each other, to houses that are on the same side and next to one another or both? Please let me know.

Adjacent houses in this game refer to houses that are next to each other on the same side. So, house 3 is adjacent to houses 1 and 5. Adjacency does not apply to houses that are opposite. So, house 3 is opposite (or "faces") house 4, but the first rule doesn't apply to that pair.

Does that help? Please let me know.

In logic game 3 does the word 'adjacent' mean just next to each other or... how do the houses relate to each other?

Hi Aretha,

In game 3, the "adjacent" means "next to each other." Thus, houses on the same side of the street that are next to each other cannot be of same style. So, for example, 1 and 3 cannot be the same style, 3 and 5 cannot be the same style, 5 and 7 cannot be the same style, 2 and 4 cannot be the same style, etc. This is an extremely restrictive, and thus helpful, rule.

Thanks!

Hi,

Could someone please show me the full diagram and rules for this question? I think I may have been missing a rule or not law or something. I had:

7 R/S _T_8
5 _T_ _S_6
3 _R_ ___4
1 S/T ___2

Thank you!

Hi K Gorham,

It looks like you got all the inferences with your setup, which gives you enough information to correctly answer all of the questions. Was there a specific question that threw you off, or perhaps you had difficulty keeping one of the rules in mind? Some of the rules here are hard to visually represent.
