Subha Patel is an olfactory scientist working for International Flavors and Fragrances. She specializes in finding new scents recorded and reconstituted from nature thanks to Living Flower Technology. She has extracted fragrance ingredients from different flowering plants into bottles labeled herbal, sweet, honey, anisic and rose. She has learned that a formula for a perfume is acceptable if and only if it does not violate any of the rules listed: If the perfume contains herbal, it must also contain honey and there must be twice as much honey as herbal. If the perfume contains sweet, it must also contain anisic, and the amount of anisic must equal the amount of sweet. honey cannot be used in combination with anisic. anisic cannot be used in combination with rose. If the perfume contains rose, the amount of rose must be greater than the total amount of the other essence or essences used. Which of the following could be added to an unacceptable perfume consisting of two parts honey and one part rose to make it acceptable?

A. Two parts rose
B. One part herbal
C. Two parts honey
D. One part sweet


a) 2 parts of rose
one part of herbal cant be used because it has to be of double quantity as that of honey
two parts of honey can not be used as it will increase the qty of honey than rose
and lastly one part of sweet can nto be used because sweet must be used in combinatoin with anisic which in turn is incompatible with rose.
