Logic Problems October 2017
The China Syndrome

Clue 6 should say "no more than one was spun counterclockwise" instead of "only one was spun counterclockwise". The plates described in the clue are consecutively spun in the order E, F, A. The first time they are spun consecutively, none of the plates is spun counterclockwise since plate A is being spun for the second time, not the first. The suggested rephrasing of the clue leads to the same solution as the one given by the magazine.

Also, Clue 3 is unnecessary.

I did this puzzle recently, and until I paid attention to Clue 3, I put the Lenox into position F. So I think Clue 3 IS necessary!
