CAB is forbidden, but I see a CAB(/BAC) in the loop.
Also, what is the significance of the arrows?


I think I figured out why your question confused me: Those "arrows" are capital As.


Ha! With so many pages, I printed 1/2 size on less paper. I see it now, thanks! :)

16. FENCES SWITCH
Like example, is a blank grid printed next to the actual puzzle?
If so, should the digits after switching be also written in?

Blank grid will be provided under the actual puzzle.
All we need is the loop. You may use any grid and you do not need to write the digits.

The forbidden sequences seem to have a duplicate, I suppose the first BAC should be ACB. More importantly, why is it not a valid solution if you draw a loop that's interrupted in the bottom two rows between columns 2 and 3. The sequence of letters is AAABBCCC.... I interpret the rules to say that "(length of word) letters along the loop are never an anagram of word".


Yes, your interpretation is right and our example have two solutions. It will be fixed in the updated version of the IB.

Puzzle 10-11:
" Each Cell that has exactly three shaded orthogonally adjacent cells is marked with a circle"
So does that mean converse rule applies ?

Puzzle 12-13:
Above already mentioned that numbers will be in circles only if at all present.
I want to just clarify "So cells with circles cannot be shaded and it is treated as unshaded cell", am I correct ?

Thanks
