Rule Regurding Jerry: Game 5

Hello, I was kindly wondering if someone could clarify the rule regarding J on game five. It is very confusing because it makes me think that he can only drive on Wednesdays or Saturdays (or both), but it also says he can drive on other days. The answers to questions and explanations to 14 and 19 seem to contradict one another. I guess I am just needing it clarified if I see this type of wording in a rule later. Thank you!

This rule tells us that J must drive on either W or S or both but he could also drive on other days. This means that if J drives on only one out of six days, it must be either W or S, if he drives on two out of six days, then one of these days must be W or S and the second day could be either W or S or any other day. If he drives on three out of six days, one of the days must be W or S, and days 2 and 3 could be any day including W or S:
1 day: W/S
2 days: W/S + any day including W/S
3 days: W/S + any day + any day

This is a fairly open rule and allows J to drive on any day as long as one of the days he drives on includes W or S.

I have reviewed questions 14 and 19 and am not seeing any contradiction. Please let me know if there is a specific part of the explanation that is unclear.
