­Hope that this answer helps you

Quite dirty, but on the left "your player", and on the vertical the other player
so there are many categories ( exp, and technologies used, maybe there are some things that are not reflected as No knowledge, or same experience)

Hi,

­
I'll simplify using the following nomenclature.

Replace the arrow (---> )in the below statements with ("is advantageous against opponents who know/are"). 
TO = Traditional Openings
NTO = Non Traditional Openings
DNO = Do not know Openings
AO = Aggressive Openings
DO =Defensive Openings
LE = Less Experienced
ME = More Experienced.

Now follow the question statement.
Quote:
1. the traditional openings—strategic sequences of moves at the beginning of games—are most advantageous against opponents who understand both the traditional and the nontraditional openings, and also against those who do not understand any of the openings very well.

2. nontraditional openings are most advantageous against opponents who understand only the traditional openings

3. Aggressive openings, whether traditional or nontraditional, generally favor a player who uses them against an opponent less experienced with Game X

4. defensive openings, whether traditional or nontraditional, tend to reduce an opponent's advantage when used by a player less experienced with Game X.


1. TO ----> TO,NTO,DNO
2. NTO ----> TO
3. AO ----> LE
4. DO ----> ME

 ­Now see statements 1 and 3.

Traditional Agressive Openings is advantageous against an oponent who knows both T and NT openings but is less experienced than you. (Option 3)*

And Statements 2 and 4.

Non Traditional Defensive Openings is advantageous against an opponent who knows Traditional Openings but is more experienced than you. (Option 2)


* I must point out that if you are using Traditional Openings, it does not matter what kind of opening your opponent plays, you will always be at an advantage. So, it only comes down to experience.
