    Budget setting

    At the Magic Forestry Commission budget meeting last night it was decided that the committee had to reduce exactly five of eight areas of expenditure.

    The areas of expenditure were Grass Seed, Logging, Machetes, Netting, Protective Equipment, Recycling, Soil Sampling Kits, and Watering cans. There are strict conditions that must be applied when dealing with Commission budgets and expenditure and they are as follows:

    A) If both Grass Seed and Soil Sampling Kits are reduced, Watering cans is also reduced.
    [img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] If Netting is reduced, neither Recycling nor Soil Sampling Kits is reduced.
    C) If Protective Equipment is reduced, Logging is not reduced
    D) Of the three areas Logging, Machetes and Recycling, exactly two are reduced.

    If Watering cans is reduced, which of the following could be a complete and accurate list of the four other areas of expenditure to be reduced?

    1) Grass Seed, Machetes, Protective Equipment, Soil Sampling Kits
    2) Logging, Machetes, Netting, Recycling
    3) Logging, Machetes, Protective Equipment, Soil Sampling Kits
    4) Machetes, Netting, Protective Equipment, Soil Sampling Kits
    5) Machetes, Protective Equipment, Recycling, Soil Sampling Kits
