The premise is simple. You are presented with two scenarios, of which (and here’s where it gets dicey) you can only have one.
In addition, there are two very specific rules to the game:
Rule 1.0 a. You cannot have neither.
Rule 36.5 b. You cannot have both.
Now, I know it seems easy enough, but I live by the rule that there should be no rules. So I typically blow 36.5 b. out of the water and take both. It really bugs the rule-makers out there. Call me a renegade.
