Game Classification: Mastering the Possibility.
Three Subjects for Fall and Spring: Mf, Ms, Of, Os, Nf, Ns
Folders 1 and 2 must have the same order (1== 2)
Folders 3 and 4 must have different order (3!=4) (Ooops, edited)
Mf (1 or 4)
Os (1 or 4)
Ns : not 5

Two major scenarios because of Mf (1 or 4) and Os (1 or 4):

Mf Ms Ns/f Os (Of, Nf/s)
_ _ _ _ _ _
1 2 3 4 5 6

Os Of Ns/f Mf (Nf/s, Ms) The variables in parenthesis are interchangable
_ _ _ _ _ _
1 2 3 4 5 6

7. A is incorrect because only N can be in the 3rd folder
B is incorrect because 1 and 2 doesn't have the same order
C is incorrect because Os has to be 1 or 4
D is correct because it plays right into the 2nd scenario
E is incorrect because D is correct.

8. A is correct because folder 3 can have only N

9. B is correct on the basis of 2nd scenario

10. D is correct on the basis of 2nd scenario

11. B is correct on the basis of 2nd scenario (Os and Mf is determined)

12. E is correct on the basis of 1st and 2nd scenario. (A is incorrect because if Ns is in folder 3, it is possible for Nf to be in Folder 5. The question stem contains "Must")

13. C is correct because in scenario 1, folder 6 could have Of and in scenario 2, folder 6 could have Ms
