### Prep 42.Section 1. Question 14 Error?

The correct answer choice is (A) one. How can that be?

I mapped out several different options and my answer choice can vary-- from 2 days to even 4 days.

Option 1:
Monday: 1O
Tuesday: 1S
Wednesday: 2O and 1P
Friday: 3S and 3P

Option 2:
Monday: 1O
Friday: 3S and 3P

How were you able to determine that only in one day can at most 2 patches be made?

Thank you

It sounds like you're misunderstanding the question. It's asking which of the days cannot have three batches in any acceptable solution. Only Monday has a maximum of two. Because of the third rule, at most, a batch of oatmeal and a batch of sugar could be made on Monday. On any of the other four days (Tuesday through Friday), a batch of all three types could be made. Hence, the answer is one (Monday).
