Thought For The Day
In trying to prove his identity Number 6
calls for Alison to go to the Green Dome. This in order to prove who he is by
using his mental link with Alison-Number 24. The problem is, out of run of five
cards Alison calls out only one correct card, and this is seen as a failure.
However it might be expected that Alison would miss-call some of the five
cards, as previously the score had been 17 out of 25, making 8 wrongly called
cards. Taking that score of 17 out of 25, when she calls 5 out of 5 it seems
just too perfect, and it would have seemed more natural if she had called at
least one wrong card, considering the failure rate of 8 cards out of 25.
Does the failure to call 4 correct cards out
of 5 disprove the mental link between Number 6 and Alison? It’s certainly a
sudden drop in percentages!
