Ms. Forest likes to let her students choose who their partners will be; however, no pair of students may work together more than seven class periods in a row. Adam and Baxter have studied together seven class periods in a row. Carter and Dennis have worked together three class periods in a row. Carter does not want to work with Adam. Who should be assigned to work with Baxter?
Carter
Adam
Dennis
Forest
Answer: Option
Explanation:
Baxter should be assigned to study with Carter. Baxter cannot be assigned with Adam, because they have already been together for seven class periods. If Baxter is assigned to work with Dennis, that would leave Adam with Carter, but Carter does not want to work with Adam.

Adam and baxter have worked for seven days so they have to change their partner. If dennis was given to baxter. Carter and adam has to be paired but carter don't want to pair up with adam. So carter should be paired to baxter.

A (+) B => 7

C (+) D => 3

If C doesn't want to work with A, he should be assigned with B.

Therefore, C (Carter) should be assigned to work with B (Baxter).

Hence Carter is the required answer.
