Y license holders travel 5 days of a week: Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

How many hours a week are delivery vehicles allowed to pass through the heart of the city?

Correct! Wrong!

Delivery vehicles can travel 5 hours in the morning and 4 hours in the afternoon, totaling 9 hours.
They are only permitted to drive “weekdays”, so 5 days per week.
5 days x 9 hours = 45 hours per week.

How many license plates may a single car have?

Correct! Wrong!

As the paragraph states, “No one vehicle has more than one license plate, except if deemed necessary by the appropriate police authority.”
So far, no vehicle has more than one plate. But the police have stated that it’s possible for one vehicle to have more than one, but it’s not stated what the maximum number, if any, of license plates a vehicle may be issued.
For this reason, the most accurate answer is “impossible to know”.
There is not enough information to draw an accurate conclusion

Only on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays may all private automobiles enter the city's central business district.

Correct! Wrong!

False – there are two types of private vehicle licenses: X and Y.
X license holders can travel Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays.
But Y license holders can travel those three days plus Saturday and Sunday.
Therefore, it is incorrect to say that "all private vehicles can only travel" on those three days.

Mary commutes in a Ford Focus to her accounting job in the heart of the city. She wants to drive into the city on Thursdays because she has an early shift at the office. What kind of license will Mary receive?

Correct! Wrong!

Mary is not providing an emergency service, and she’s not a business owner in the city center.
As a result, there is currently no license plate that permits her to travel by car on Thursdays.
For this reason, she will not be issued a license plate unless a new one/category of license is introduced to accommodate her needs.
Mary must take public transportation and/or walk to work.
