June 2007, Game 2, Question 9

The content provides a detailed walkthrough of solving a local question on the GRE, focusing on the application of specific rules to determine what must be true about the scheduling of films over three days.
  • A new sketch is started to incorporate a rule specifying the frequency of film showings: Greed (G) three times, Harvest (H) twice, and Limelight (L) once.
  • G must be shown on all three days due to its frequency, affecting its placement relative to H and L based on additional rules.
  • H cannot be shown on Saturday, leading to its placement on Thursday and Friday.
  • L has flexible placement options but is restricted on Friday due to a rule preventing G and L from being shown the same day.
  • The correct answer is identified by applying these rules to determine that H and G must both be shown on Friday, a fact that must be true.
