# PT68.S4.G2 - exactly five witnesses

I was watching J.Y explanation for PT 68 Game 2 and he mentions that the stimulus allows for one day to be empty, and later on using the rules he infers that none of the days will be empty. But during the time section when I was reading the stimulus I thought otherwise because it mentions "hearing takes exactly three days" and I automatically thought this means at least one witness per day because if one day is empty the hearing does not takes exactly three days but happens between Monday to Wednesday.

My question is that, did I get lucky or I am allowed to make such deduction?

I would have made the same deduction, and I think "exactly" does mean that there is at least one witness each day. Otherwise why use "to take exactly three days, M, T, W" and not "to be conducted M to W"?
In this case fortunately it doesn't matter, because the rules place at least one witness on each day, but I think you're right.

Thanks @runiggyrun for clarifying this for me.
