December 1991 Game in TM HW Lesson #7 page 72

I really didn't know how to set up this game. I was surprised that i just got 2X out of the 6 questions. I thought i would get all wrong. Didn't really know why i picked the right answers, they just felt right.

Anyways here is the game, i will appreciate if anyone can set up this game for me. Thanks.

At an automobile exhibition, cars are displayed on each floor of a three floor building. On each floor the cars are either all family cars or all sports cars, either all new or all used, either all production models or all research models. The following conditions apply to the exhibition:

If the exhibition includes both family cars and sports cars, then each family car is displayed on a lower-numbered floor than any sports car.
The exhibition includes no used research models.
The exhibition includes no research models that are sports cars.
There are new cars on floor 1.
There are used cars on floor 3.

You must have been doing a lot of practicing.  After awhile, the right answer just sort of jumps out as right.  It does for me.

Hey LSATguy,

After reading your post I decided to try the game out for myself.  I got all 6 right.  Here's my set-up

(P)(U) Floor 3:
       Floor 2:
(N)    Floor 1:

P = production model, U = used model, N = new model.  

I outlined the rules as follows:

F or S
N or U
P or R

F and S --> S higher than F

U --> not R (this also means U --> P)
R --> not U (or R --> N)

R --> not S (R --> F)
S --> not R (S -->P)

Hope this helps.
