­Such a brilliant question that looks easy because of the everyday context it uses and because of the simple table. But it is in fact fairly complex with not one but two layers of complexity.

1. Layer 1 – Dataset presents multiple criteria and the decisions that Felipe took.
2. Layer 2 – The complex question statement! We need to find if the additional criterion presented in the statement helps explain any of the conclusions arrived at in the dataset. If it does, then the answer for that statement is YES. If it does not explain any of the conclusions, then the answer for that statement is NO.

Watch this video solution to understand how you should use the “owning the dataset” mindset to solve such questions.

Let us know if you have any questions.

How is statement 2 explaining atleast 1 conclusion?
Although the statement helps in justification for the selection of R2 over R5, it neither explains the reason for preference of R1 > R6 > R2, nor it explains the reason for rejection of R4 and R5.
Could you please explain this point? egmat

Felipe has concluded that:
• his first preference is Room 1, second is Room 6, and third is Room 2
I think the third preference should be Room 3 instead of Room 2. Though it was not required in the question but still it defies "preference" logic used.
