The correct answer choice is (C)
The hypothetical produced in question #23 proves that answer choice (C) is possible, and thus answer choice (C) is correct.
Answer choice (A) is incorrect because if Nikki’s spring sport is M, then Otto’s fall sport must be R, meaning his spring sport could not also be R.
Answer choice (B) is incorrect because if Nikki’s spring sport is R, then her fall sport must be M, which is in conflict with the remainder of this answer choice which specifies that her summer sport is also M.
Answer choice (D) is incorrect because if Otto’s fall sport is M, then Nikki’s fall sport must be R, which conflicts with the remainder of this answer choice which specifies that her spring sport is also R.
Answer choice (E) is incorrect because in this answer choice both Nikki and Otto participate in M in seasons other than fall. Yet, from our setup we know that either Nikki or Otto must participate in M during the fall.
