June 2007, Game 2, Question 10



Summary
The content provides a strategic approach to tackling local questions on the GRE, specifically through the example of arranging films in a schedule based on given rules.
  • Local questions involve applying specific rules to arrange elements, in this case, films on a schedule.
  • A key strategy is to sketch out scenarios based on the rules, such as placing films on specific days and considering all possible arrangements.
  • When faced with multiple possibilities, it's beneficial to explore each scenario separately to ensure all options are considered.
  • The example demonstrates handling a rule that requires a film to be shown multiple times and the implications for the arrangement of other films.
  • Determining the first film on Thursday involves understanding the sequence and restrictions placed on each film, leading to the identification of possible films that could occupy that slot.
