Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We wish to find which of the five marbles could be blue (be careful about "which of the following statements MUST be true" followed by "possibilities," it only asks for all possible values). We know that marble 1 cannot be red. Marble 2 may or may not be blue. Marble 3 is obviously blue. Marble 4 cannot be blue because marble 1 is red. Marble 5 is the same color as marble 2, which could be blue. Here, we note that marble 3 is blue and marbles 2 and 5 are either both blue or both a different, nonblue color. Hence, the only possible values of x are 1 and 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Don't worry about why there are a total of 10 marbles . That does not affect the answer . He might well have put 15 marbles  the answer would still be the same.
