For this question, it states that Guadeloupe precedes any voyage to Jamaica. So why is it not certain Jamaica is the destination in week 2?

The explanation does not answer the question. If Guadeloupe will be the destination in the week preceding ANY voyage it makes to Jamaica, should A be true?

Hey there,

Great question. You're thinking (A) should be true, but it doesn't
have to be true.

It sounds like you're misunderstanding what the rule talking about
Guadalupe and Jamaica is saying.

The rule says Guadeloupe will be its destination in the week preceding
any voyage it makes to Jamaica.

What this means is that any time we see Jamaica, Guadalupe goes right
before it, making a GJ block.

J - >GJ

The rule DOES NOT mean that if we see G, then J goes right after. This
is what it sounds like you misinterpreted the rule to mean. With this
misinterpretation, then yes, (A) would be the answer. However, this is
not what the rule is saying.

If J is 5th, then G is 4th, and since G is also 1st, M has to go 6th,
because otherwise, we wouldn't be able to place the M-G-M chain on the
board. This reveals answer choice (E) as our must be true.
