QUESTION TYPE: Principle
PRINCIPLES: Vanessa wants all programming to be done in pairs.
Jo thinks the most productive programmers should be allowed to work alone.
ANALYSIS: You’re looking for something that violates one of the two principles. It’s easy to violate Vanessa’s principle: if even a single programmer works alone, that violates her principle.
Jo’s principle is harder to violate. She says the most productive programmers should be allowed to work alone. Jo doesn’t say whether any other programmers must work alone.
- This matches Vanessa’s principle. And Jo was only talking about the most productive programmers, so this doesn’t violate her principle.
- Same as A.
- Same as A and B.
- CORRECT. This matches Vanessa’s principle. This violates Jo’s principle: Yolanda is the most productive programmer, so Jo would say she should be allowed to work alone.
- Same as A, B and C.
