Logic Games Practice – Paella

Diagram the following game rule:

“The paella is exactly three dishes to the right of the borscht.”


Often people mess up rules like this.  It is a bit weird since the number three is included in this rule, but really, the rule means that B is first, then there are two spaces and then the letter P.  The reason is that if P is exactly three to the right of B, then we write B, count off two blank spaces, and then in the third space, write P.  That is the only way to show that P is exactly three spaces to right of B.  If, on the other hand, we were told that there were exactly three spaces between P and B, then we would include three blanks.
