Here A supervises B and D
---> D supervises L
---------> L supervises S and Y

When a document is reviewed by one employee, then the next person to review it is that employees's supervisor.

So if S reviews a document then L will also review it,and if L reviews it then D will also review it and if D reviews it then A will also review it,

So on the basis of above example (Best possible case from bottom to up), and per the question if Laszlo is among the reviewers than max number of people in the chain would be 4

Similarly if Adiliah is among the reviewers than max number of people in the chain would be 4

The chain that makes up :

A --> B, D --> L ---> S, Y.
The left hand side denoting who reviews, and the right side, the one who gets reviewed.

Now if Laszlo (L) is among the reviewers:
Assuming a document comes by S, it would be reviewed by L, which in turn would be reviewed by D, which again would be reviewed by A. So if Laszlo (L) is among the reviewers - at max 4 people would review that one document.

Similarly is Adiliah (A) is among reviewers: - reasoning being same as above, any number of people could be reviewers, but the maximum people who would review is 4.

para shorten in analysis:
A B D L S Y = 6 members
A --> B and D
D--> L
L--> S+Y

member --> supervisor

Question Analysis
L --> S (2)
L --> Y (2)
A: D-->L --> S (4)
A-->D-->L-->Y (4)
A--> B(2)

A is among reviewers: it can be 4
if L is reviewer ; L can also be present in (ADLY/S)=4.

This is a poorly worded question IMO. I answered 2 for both thinking that the review stops at the first supervisor.

chetan2u and Bunuel:(

I selected 3 for Lazlo, if Lazlo was among the reviewers (Initial review for 1 document + Review of doc reviewed by Saleema + Review of doc reviewed by Yarah).
5 for Adilaah, using the same logic. Any explanation is helpful. Thank you.

Select Laszlo among reviewers for the maximum number of department members that could have reviewed a single document if Laszlo was among the reviewers. Select Adiliah among reviewers for the maximum number of department members that could have reviewed a single document if Adiliah was among the reviewers­

I would agree not the best of the language. Could have been made in a way to be less ambiguous.

Reviewed by a department member to be reviewed by that member’s supervisor.

One way could be: The document is always reviewed by the supervisor of any member reviewing the document.

So, the above would mean that the entire chain gets involved: A(member)=>B(A’s supervisor) => C(B’s supervisor) => and so on till there is no supervisor on top.

Prompt says:
These are the only supervisory relationships involving these six employees.
Each document that the department processes must be initially reviewed by exactly one department member.
Each document reviewed by a department member must then be reviewed by that person’s supervisor.

From the above prompt, i understand that A is the supervisor of only (D) and (B)
Now ''A'' can't initially review the dcos. He can review only after docs have initially been reviewed by (B) and (D)

So, max in ''Adiliah among reviewers'' should be 3 not 4.
