Hello,

I am having some trouble with this question. I picked A and understand why it is right. However, answer choice D reads "The second of the three visits includes Sasada. I feel like this would also have to be true because if R and T are in two, then that means the order of the visits is F - H - M. F can only have one executive, which would have to be Q. S cannot go after V, which made me think it has to be in H with R and T. Does D not have to be true because S and V could be together at the same site? Would the rule have to say S cannot be at the same visit or the visit after V? I just want to make sure I understand. Thanks!

Hello Ari,

You correctly identified the error! S's visit cannot be after V's. But that doesn't eliminate the possibility that the go on the same visit. In this question, that would eliminate the possibility of V being with R and T, but S could be either with RT or with V on the final day.

As another small note, remember that we don't know the order of the visits here, except that F is first. H or M could be second, because in either case, H would be after F.

Great job reflecting on this question. You did my job for me!

I did not see the reply before! Couldn't the order also be M - F - H? Not just F - H/M - H/M.. if no, why not? I set up a diagram with M - F - H as my order and has Q - S - R/T/V, which does not appear to violate any rules.

You're overlooking the restriction posed by the question, Ari, which is that "the second of the three site visits includes both Rodriguez and Taylor." F cannot be the second site in this local question because F only gets one of the executives! So F has to go first, and Q has to be that one executive since Q must always be before both R and T.
