PT 21 Q 12-17

Just one of those questions where i still didn't get the "aaah" moment despite getting 5/6 under the ideal game time 2nd time around.

For those who want to tune in, it's on page 86.

I'm looking at q13 and i'm asking myself how am i violating the rules and why is A wrong?

This is my set up:

- Q - X - - <---Mornings
U R Y Z - - <--Afternoons
M T w TH F S <----days

you'll have to excuse the lack of space between each days, i'm not good with html and i can't figure out how to let the space for each day actually show. Just know mondays= none in the morning and U in the afternoon, and saturday ends with none in the morning and none in the afternoon.


2 additional questions i have:

1) In the stimulus it does mention that Q & R must be done consecutively, does this mean i can have Q done on an appropriate afternoon and R the following day in the morning?

2) While the stimulus specifically states that each variable must be done exactly once for a full morning or afternoon, can i have 2 variables in say, one morning or one afternoon?

Thanks in advance for the insights. October LSAT YOU'RE GOING DOWNNN GRRRRR

I don't have this test handy right now, but if this is the game where an attorney is interviewing hostile and non-hostile witnesses over the course of a week, then Q and R are being interviewed simultaneously, meaning they are interviewed together and are treated as a unit for the whole game, always sharing a time slot. So Q and R are both in the Tuesday afternoon time slot, for example, or the Tuesday morning time slot, or whatever. And it also states that they're the only two who share a time slot, so every other witness has to be the only one in their time slot.
