PT 55, Section 4 LG
« on: February 11, 2010, 12:09:12 PM »
I have a question about Game #4.  I am having trouble with the fourth rule (If Jasmine is still on board......).

When I was doing the questions, I found I could only get the right answer if what J does is determined before G.  So you can't have a setup like the following:

Person:  V R G J
Stop:    M L S F

Doesn't this setup still follow the rules (this contradicts the answer in question 22)?  The only issue with this setup is that G may not yet know what J does.  But this also assumes that these people do not yet already know the schedule of the van.  If they already know the schedule of the van, then if J has not yet gotten off by stop S, then it must be that J is still on board when J reaches F.

Can someone explain how Rule 4 prevents this setup from happening?

Thanks for your assistance!!!

It's easy to miss the additional condition towards the end of this question. Your hypothetical doesn't break any of the rules, but G must be the second one off the van for number twenty-two.
