25.) there are an even number of people in powerville,
every person is either an "a" or a "b".
all "a's" have power over all "b's"
every person is either a "c" or a "d".
all "c's" have power over all "d's"
every person is either an "e" or an "f".
all "e's" have power over all "f''s"
and every person is either a "g" or an "h".
all "g's" have power over all "h's"
there are 16 possible combinations.
what then is the power structure in powerville?
obviously, the a-c-e-g's have the most power, as no one has power over them.
and the b-d-f-h's are at the bottom, as they do not have power over anybody.
but what about the others?
which of the following statements do you think makes the most sense?
1. the persons with three "plus"attributes ( a-c-e-h's, a-c-f-g's, a-d-e-g's and b-c-e-g's) rank above the persons with two "plus" attributes ( a-c-f-h's, a-d-e-h's, a-d-f-g's, b-c-e-h's, b-c-f-g's and b-d-e-g's) who in turn rank above the persons with only one (a-d-f-h's, b-c-f-h's, b-d-e-h's and b-d-f-g's)
2. there is no way to tell who has power, except for the highest and lowest group
3. determination should be made as to the relative potency of the 4 groupings (a-b, c-d, e-f, and g-h, ) and the 16 combinations could then be ranked in order.
