Game 4, question 14

Good Morning, the explanation in purple seems to violate the [~VT/~TV} rule. I count: W < r/s < r/s < Y < T/v < Q < T/V W < R < S < Y < T < Q < V W < S < R < Y < T < Q < V W < R < S < Y < V < Q < T W < R < S < Y < T < Q < V. I appreciate your time and attention.

I agree with Frederick's assessment.. Could someone illuminate?

@DEFCONFMB Maybe I can help. Let's take a look.

The purple explanation does not violate the last rule becuase it does not place T and V next to each other. Rather, it places them in spots 5 and 7, separated by Q in spot 6.

Otherwise, your set-up of "W - R/S - S/R - Y - T/V - Q - V/T" is correct. This gives us four possible scenarios (which is why answer choice A is correct). Your first three listed scenarios are correct, but your fourth scenario is a replica of your first. Rather, it should be "W-S-R-Y-V-Q-T."

Does this make sense? Please let us know if you have any other questions!
