Local rule questions can be solved with a three step process:
- Draw the new rule.
- See if you can make a deduction.
- Check if that deduction is the answer.
I’ll show you how it works in practice. First, you reproduce the main diagram. It shouldn’t take long, 5-15 seconds. You don’t need to reproduce the numbers for the local version.
Then you add G in 7.
Then you see what you can deduce. 9 has to be red, since it’s the only color left. G can’t go beside itself, and Y is already in spot 5.
Now, we check if that is the answer. It is! D is CORRECT.
Done correctly, this can be a 15-30 second process.
None of the other answers have to be true. As we saw in the setup, store 2 can be green or yellow, so A and E are wrong.
And if store 2 were green, then either 8 or 10 could be yellow. So B and C are wrong.
