Turning our attention first to Question 6, Which one of the following could be a complete
0:10
and accurate description of the order in which the films are shown at the festival? Let's
0:15
go through these rules one at a time.
0:17
The first rule, again coming directly from this passage before our conditions, tells
0:22
us that we have at least one of each Limelight, Harvest, and Greed. Just based on that we
0:30
can eliminate (A), because where is Greed? So (A) is out. You notice (B) has Harvest,
0:36
Greed, Limelight, (C), Harvest, Limelight, Greed, (D), Greed, Harvest, Limelight, (E),
0:42
Greed, Harvest, Limelight, so those are fine.
0:45
We know we can't have the same film shown twice on the same day, and none of our remaining
0:53
answer choices violate that rule. Then max, three per day. Again, we do not see any day
0:59
here with more than three films shown.
1:03
Now let's turn our attention to the conditions. Again, the first condition here tells us that
1:08
on Thursday Harvest is shown, and no film is shown after it. You notice answer choice
1:14
(D) we have Harvest being shown second, followed by Limelight, which would clearly violate
1:21
rule number one, so (D) would be eliminated.
1:26
We then know from our second condition that Saturday has either G or L, but not both,
1:32
and no film can be shown after it. First, looking at (B) you notice we have G and L
1:39
on Friday, which violates the not both condition of our second rule, so (B) does not follow,
1:45
and (B) would be eliminated.
1:48
Then you notice in (E), while we have Limelight on Friday and we don't have Greed, the problem
1:53
with (E) is that Harvest follows Limelight on Friday, which also violates our second
1:59
condition. (E) would be eliminated, proving that (C) here would be the correct answer.
2:05
Again, let's just write this out very quickly as our previous work, because it might be
2:10
useful to us as we proceed on to the next question. Thursday's going to be Harvest.
2:18
Friday is going to be Limelight, and Saturday is going to be Limelight and Greed.
