I'm confused about the #3 condition: "There is a box containing a green ball that is lower in the sack..." Isn't that implying "only one box containing Green?" For example, If we don't make "W-G-G-G-R-R" we can't get right answer for very last question, right? However, I thought if (WGGGRR) is right, there are THREE Box containing green ball that is lower than ANY box containing red, not one. Please correct me. Thanks,

The third condition merely means that there is at least one box containing a green ball. It in no way means that there is exactly one box containing a green ball.

It uses the ambiguous pronoun "a," as opposed to "exactly one."

Hope that clears things up! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
