Question 41
Ray shoots with Red at Black and Blue which are close together on the yard-line. He just misses Blue and when he tries to put Red in its correct position on the yard-line he finds that Blue is just in the way. He knows that he must now put Red on the yard-line in contact with Blue. He also knows that he can put Red either side of Blue even though the side nearest to where Red would normally be placed, if Blue was not there, is available. However, when he tries to place Red on the side away from where it went off of the lawn, he finds that Black prevents him from doing this. He therefore puts Red in contact with Black on the opposite side to where Blue is. Is this correct?
