Hi! Help! I'm totally confused by something. The third game on the June 96 test is as follows:
Each of two boats, boat 1 and boat 2, will be assigned exactly four people. Exactly eight people, three adults - F, G, and H - and five children - V, W, X, Y, and Z - must be assigned to the boats according to the following conditions:
Each boat is assigned at least one adult.
If F is assigned to boat 2, G is assigned to boat 2.
If V is assigned to boat 1, W is assigned to boat 2.
X and Z are assigned to different boats.
Now.. question 13 states, "Which one of the following is an acceptable assignment of people to boat 1?
A) F, G, H, X
B) F, H, W, Y
C) F, H, Y, Z
D) F, V, W, X
E) G, H, X, Y
Using the contrapositive of rule 2 (F2 --> G2), you get F1 --> G1 according to the Logic Games Bible description of the way to use a "two value system". (page 110) Yet the test answer is C in which F and G are not in the same boat. According to the LGB, this should be wrong. Any help??
