For this question, it does not make sense the answer because:

I have the rule that says:according to the contrapositive of the third rule,

when light 2 is yellow or purple than light 3 must be green and for Answer choice A ,

we have the second light bulb purple which means that the 3 light bulb must be green and we have the first light bulb green. which would cause green to be used twice in the first and last light bulb. Please clarify?

Thanks

Hi Ellen,

I think maybe there was confusion because you did not post a question number with this, but I see you are asking about question #11.

Please take a look at that third rule again--the contrapositive will be that if Light 2 is Yellow or Green then Light 3 is Green. But, in (A), Light 2 is Purple, so all bets are off.

Thanks!
