I had a little trouble with this question but reviewed and think I understand:

If we cannot use G, then we only have P & Y.

Due to Rule 1, if P is first then Y is second. However, Due to Rule 3, we cannot put Y second because P must maintain that spot (assuming no G). Thus the only option would be to put Y first only, or Y first and third, leading to YPP or YPY as the only two possible unique combos. Is this line of thinking correct?

Thanks!

TRS,

That's exactly the correct way of thinking. I got the same conclusion a little differently at the end, or maybe I just thought it using different words: 1 is definitely yellow, so 1 and 2 are completely fixed, and only 3 can be different (although not green), so two different total sequences. Thus, answer choice (B) is correct.
