This is a very funny question. I’ve never seen another like it…the local rule has nothing to do with the right answer.
If the stand has watermelons, then it must have T or F. But it turns out that doesn’t tell us much.
Instead, we have to consider the answer choices in light of the general rules.
A could be true. The stand doesn’t have to carry figs as long as it has tangerines.
B could be true. The stand doesn’t need T as long as it has F.
C could be true. There’s no reason the stand has to carry pears. No rule says pears must be in, ever. And there’s no relation between pears and watermelons.
D could be true. Oranges require pears, but pears don’t require oranges.
E cannot be true, so it is CORRECT. If the stand has P, then it doesn’t have K. And without K, the stand needs T. So if the stand has P it must have T as well.
The funny thing is, E is always true, whether or not W is in. I’ve never seen a local rule question where the local rule is irrelevant.
