LGB Pg 47 False Block Question

Postby NvrEvrGvUp » Sat Mar 13, 2010 10:33 pm

Can someone please explain the following question to me?

"Each rock classic is immediately preceded on the CD by a new composition."

I realize that nothing is said regarding the "new composition" and that the rule only restricts the "rock classic".

However, why is the answer to this: R --> NR, when the following is just an easy block setup?

"Tom can sit neither immediately before nor immediately after Pat."

Why is the answer, in this case, not: P --> T/P or P/T? Doesn't the rule only restrict where Tom can sit?

Maybe I'm having a brain fart but, thanks in advance all the same.

They aren't the same. "Tom can sit neither immediately before nor immediately after Pat" has the same meaning as "Pat can sit neither immediately before nor immediately after Tom." The rule restricts both Pat and Tom.

You know what, I actually thought of that right after I posted it; I knew I was having a brain fart :P

Thanks!
