Question 10

Hi! So I see that in the order that we have set due to the partial sequence we have.... N > K > M. O Due to that order being the case why can't we logically make a deduction that K has to go in the second to last spot making it so the answer to 10 is 2 rather than one? Thank you!

Happy to help!

While you are correct that K could fill the 6th spot, it is not our only option. N could also be placed 6th without breaking any of the rules. Since we have two options for variables to fill the spot, we cannot make a definitive placement.

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