picture shows two elevators
in a large observation room at the top of a
tall building. Notice the sign on the wall between
the elevators. It says...
These must be pretty big elevators!
placement of this sign is important in interpreting its
meaning. Notice how the
sign at first glance seems to apply to the elevators
since it is next to them.
Actually, we know it doesn't apply to the elevators
since these elevators can't even come close to
holding 182 people. The sign applies to the whole room!
