The rule says that R must be a placed away from the first R. That’s another way of saying that it has to be placed *close *to P.

If you count, you’ll see that in any diagram the second R must always be within two businesses of P.

**D **is **CORRECT.**

Rule substitution questions are tough. You should always think about the full effect of a rule and see if there’s another way of describing it.

The other answers are unlikely, because they are complicated. Usually a substituted rule will be simple, and merely describe the effect another way.

This diagram proves that **A, B** and **C** are wrong. It meets the conditions listed in those answers, but violates the rule we’re trying to replace. The two R’s are too close together.

**E **is strange. It doesn’t even mention restaurants. We’ve seen many past diagrams that obeyed all the rules and put O and S together, such as the diagrams from question 9.

Can you explain why answer choice A is incorrect. It appears to me that the second r is restricted to either spaces three, four, or five depending on which template you use?

Yes, there are scenarios where R can be placed in slots 3, 4, and 5 given the

originalset of rules. But, this question asks us to completely replace the rule that there must be at least two spaces between the R’s. So, if we say that a restaurant must be in space 3, 4 , or 5 and then combine that with the other rules, then this set-up would be permitted:R S R T O V P

This set-up would NOT be permitted under the original set of rules. So, that’s why (A) is incorrect — it allows a scenario that the original rules wouldn’t allow.

Ah. nevermind, just realized the restaurants are next to each other. I missed an exception where this rule doesnt work.

Can you explain why B is wrong in question 11 of test 66 section 3 (logic game section). You say that the diagram shown will violate the rules mentioned in A B and C, except… it doesnt for B. The restaurant is still next to the vet.
