Q6: I chose A because the condition 6 requires that one of the L must be on 9.
But the correct answer is E.
Could you explain it?


Thank you very much!

Hi Sherry,

Let me turn this one around on you. Since the question is a Cannot Be True question, we know that the condition in (A) cannot occur. What happens when "Jill stocks aisle 9" ?

And as you look at that, take another look at the rule that involves L--does it always have to be in aisle 9? Does an impossible result necessarily follow?

Please let me know what you think. Thanks!

Hi Dave,

Thank you for your reply! I re-read the condition 6, I think I misunderstood it. It says "Exactly one of L's aisles is an end aisle." I think "End Aisle" is supposed to mean "Aisle 1 or 9", not must be Aisle 9. Right?

Thank you very much! Looking forward to your reply!

Sincerely,
Sherry

Hi Sherry,

Yes, that is correct :-D It's 1 or 9, not just 9. If you look at the game again with this in mind, I think you will now find it a bit easier to solve this question.

Thanks!

Hello Power Score Support Staff,

Could you please provide me with a complete explanation of the correct answer to this question? I don't fully grasp the correct answer from the previous answered responses. A more in detail response of the entire question would be helpful.

Thanks,
Brennan

Hi Brennan,

Thanks for the post! I am going to send this back to you first! :)

Here's what I'd like you to do:

1. Describe your approach to the game setup. Were you able to determine what type of game it is? What the variable sets are?

2. Were you able to diagram any of the rules, or make any inferences?

3. What about the prior explanations had confused you, and did you have any specific questions?

I am confident that you will get more out of our help if we start with an understanding of how you approached the game and what you found difficult about this question. :)

Thanks!
