### preptest 57 charitable awards question

I can't for the life of me figure out why in #19 C can't be true.

The rules say that you have to award all 4 grants (M, T, W,Y) at least once each, and no more than 6 total over the course of 4 quarters. They also say that you can't have the same award twice in a quarter or in consecutive quarters. Lastly it says that 2 M are granted, and there is a W in quarter two.

I don't see why if Y is awarded in the 1st and 3rd quarter the rules are violated.

Here's an example that seems to work
1y
2mw
3ty
4m

Please? Somebody? Time is running out!

The question states "Which of the following CANNOT be true:

If TWO wildlife and TWO youth awards are given, you then need to consider the fact that you MUST still give out two medical awards, for a total of 6. Considering you need to use all 4 awards, that leave Theater Arts at #7 and 6 is the max # you can have. That is why D is the correct answer. C can be used in the scenario, D CANNOT.

Why is it necessary to give out two wildlife awards in a year? The prompt only states that you must have 2 M, and answer C only states that you need two youth. Along with 1 W and 1 T you still wouldn't go over the cap of 6.

I'm sorry, that wasn't exactly clear how I attacked answering your question. I answered it from the correct answer perspective. Once again, the only one of the five answers that CANNOT be true, which is D. C can be true with 2 youth service awards, on in the first and one in the third. A, B, and E are all possible as well.
