Video transcript

- [Instructor] Before you watch this video, make sure that you've already watched the overview video for the set up. That's where we notated the rules and make the deductions and diagrams that you're gonna see me using here. So the question asks us, how many of the politicians are there any one of whom could be interviewed in the same segment as Lewis? This question is asking us for how many people make up all the politicians who could be paired with Lewis at any given time. Since we already placed Munson and Kim into one pair, the Lewis pair here would have to be the other pair. That would be in segment one in both scenarios. Outside of Munson and Kim who can't be with Lewis because they are their own pair, the politicians left over are Fallon, Greer and Hernandez. So let's see how many of those three could be in segment one. Well, it's definitely not Fallon, right? Because we deduced already in the set up that Fallon can never be first. So let's look at our scenarios to figure out the other politicians. In scenario one, we can deduce that Hernandez or Greer could be paired with Lewis. So we have our answer. Those are the only two people left. Only Hernandez and Greer could be paired with Lewis in segment one. C is our answer.
