Are replace the rule brute force, or is there an easier way?
Anyone who is taking in the future, study that question on Sept 09. Because my LG experimental had a replace the rule on 3/4 games.
Here's a quick writeup I did on another thread about that question. The bolded part is the key and I think all replace the rules question will take this form - the CR is just a different way of stating the same rule. I believe there was a question like that on the June 2009 as well.
The key is to realize the correct answer is just a sneaky restatement of the same rule. You have the variables: HLMPSTW
When you remove the 2nd rule, the only rule left involving M is that it can't be taken with H:
H <--l--> MThat leaves 5 variables that can interact with M: LPSTW
The rule removed says M can't be with P or T
Choice B states M can only be taken with L, S, or W
You can see these are just two ways of stating the same thing.
