Then turning our attention to the fifth and
final question of the first game, "Which of
the following must be true about any acceptable
product code . . . " We're looking again for
(A), There is exactly 1 digit between the
0 and the 1. Again, looking at our free
hypothetical that we just drew up from Question
4, you notice that there are no digits between
the 0 and the 1, so (A) does not have to be
true, and (A) would be eliminated.
(B), There is exactly one digit between
the 1 and the 2. Again, that does not have
to be true, looking at our scenario 1, and
our hypothetical scenario 1 from Question
3, we notice that there is no space between
1 and 2. No digits, they are directly next
to each other, so (B) does not follow, and
(B) would be eliminated.
(C), There are at most two digits between
the 1 and the 3. Again, you notice from
scenario 1, we could actually have three digits
in between the 1 and the 3. Have 1 be first,
3 be fifth, and there would be one, two, three
digits in between, so (C) does not have to
be true, and (C) would be eliminated.
Moving to (D), There are at most, two digits
between the 2 and the 3. Again, looking
at scenario 2, we see we could have three
digits between the 2 and the 3. 2 could be
first, 3 could be fifth. Again, (D) does not
have to be true, so (D) is out.
Which brings this process of elimination to
(E), ?There are at most two digits between
the 2 and the 4. If you notice in scenario
1 where 2 is second, the latest we could have
4 is fifth, and that is exactly two spaces
in between. At most, two, in that scenario.
Whereas in scenario 1, there is no space between
2 and 4. You notice there is at most two digits
between 2 and 4. So (E) must be true, and
(E) would be the correct answer.
Alright, I hope that was helpful. Let's turn
our attention to Game 2.
