This doesn't test your quantitative ability. It tests your level of distrust. :)

I believe this question to be wrong:

What colour is the 1st Tile?
- Every red tile is preceded immediately by a yellow tile -> The 1st tile can't be red
- Every yellow tile is preceded immediately by a green tile -> The 1st tile can't be yellow

So the first tile is GREEN, and we know the sequence is Green, Yellow, Red, ... Then 24th must be red. We don't even need info from (1) nor (2).

Hi Fernandocma
What about a case where you have GYRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG.
the question does not provide any restriction for Green tile.

The question stem says every Red tile is preceded immediately by a yellow tile. If that is the case , 21st tile has to be Green and the tiles will follow GYR GYR GYR.... pattern. If it were Red, it would have defeated the purpose of the word "every".
IMO, the answer should be C.
