On the Subject of Not Colour Flash
It’s easy to identify words. Red, Blue, Green, etc. Turns out it’s a bit harder when you display a colour word in a different word though...
- A Not Colour Flash module has a display which shows a coloured word and two buttons labelled Yes and No.
- Tapping Yes cycles the word through a sequence of six.
- Tapping No cycles the colour through a different sequence of six.
- Holding Yes submits the current display.
- Holding No resets the display.
- Use the following pairs of digits in the serial number in the table below to find which entries to swap in each sequence to obtain the transformed sequences:
- Words- Use the 1st and 2nd, then the 3rd and 4th, then the 5th and 6th.
- Colours- Use the 1st and 4th, then the 2nd and 5th, then the 3rd and 6th.
- Use the flowchart below to determine the correct display to submit:
- Each cell in the flowchart below has a distinct pair of colours.
- The starting cell is determined by the initial display-
If the number of ports and port plates are both even or both odd,
the top matches the colour and the bottom matches the word.
Otherwise, the top matches the word and the bottom matches the colour.
- Follow the flowchart-
Each cell has a statement about the four sequences written in it.
If the statement is true, follow the black arrow to the next cell. Otherwise follow the grey arrow.
Stop on the twelfth cell to be visited or the first cell to be visited twice.
- The correct display is determined by the final cell-
If the number of batteries is a multiple of three,
the colour matches the top and the word matches the bottom.
Otherwise, the word matches the top and the colour matches the bottom.
