### PT 35 Game 1

I was really confused by a part of this game. Am I wrong for assuming there needed to be something in the instructions that distinguished these variables as NOT separate. At first I thought the groups were separate, but they were connected. For example, if you put F in one group, then you had to put F in wherever it was in the other sub groups. I felt like there should have been something stating that more clearly, am I wrong??

Hey ltowns1 -

I'm a little confused by what you're saying. Do you mean that you thought the the F-that-was-experienced was not the same element as the F-that-was-a-geologist?

If that's the case, there are a few signals pointing you in the right direction. First, if they refer to F twice, I'd bet my life it's the same element, unless they SUPER CLEARLY indicate that there could be more than one F. Second, they state in the first sentence that there are 8 candidates - if there were two of each letter, there would be 16 candidates! Third, remember, "F" is like someone's name - if you were to say "Bob is a builder." and shortly after say "Bob is a ninja." - it would not be reasonable for me to assume that you're talking about two different guys named Bob.

What do you think?
