GMAT Integrated Reasoning  >  Two-Part Analysis Question # 20: Custom Basketball Rules  
Time 0 0 : 0 0 : 0 0

For a particular custom basketball game, a player receives a personal warning upon accumulating at least 3 fouls within any 12 minute quarter and complete ejection from the court upon accumulating 5 such fouls at any time during the 48 minute game. For any single 48 minute game, missing between 2 minutes and 4 minutes of playtime counts as one-third of an absence, missing between 4 minutes and 10 minutes of playtime counts as half an absence, and missing more than 10 minutes counts as a full absence. However, a basketball player may postpone playtime to make up for up to 3 minutes of unexcused absence at another time.

The table contains descriptions of the unexcused absences of 5 players of a particular custom basketball game. Assume that in each case the basketball player had no other unexcused absences and made up no other time. In the table, select a description of a basketball player who qualified for a personal warning but not a complete ejection, and select a description of a basketball player who qualified for a complete ejection. Make only two selections, one in each column.
