In some cases, according to the statement there can be more than 1 father.

For example as follows:
{ name: ‘Rhodes’, pair1: ‘hD’, pair2: ‘Ba’ }
{ name: ‘Tate’, pair1: ‘aD’, pair2: ‘BM’ }

{ name: ‘Mother Taylor’, pair1: ‘:3’, pair2: ‘Ko’ }
{ name: ‘Child Camila’, pair1: ‘D3’, pair2: ‘KB’ }

Thanks for playing my puzzle

I think maybe you’re assuming that all the cases are ones where the number of chromosome pairs is only 2

But that’s only true in the very simple example that I give in the description.

For test cases, you have to check EVERY provided chromosome pair for a match, not just the first 2 pairs

I hope that helps :smiley_cat:

In test case 6, Ronald doesn’t have the same number of chromosome pairs as the other possible fathers. Is this correct?

Jonathan: #y 'R vy =- %b 91 ?? 8b f9 NI uj C; Zd *, !m Hk 2S IP I7 +0 8r vS Vy 6o Ne /( v? !: s& K) rH A# Ru T- 93 9h

In the test case, all people do have the same number of chromosome pairs. Ronald’s chromosomes that you posted is truncated.

Oooops! Sorry, should have realized that. Thanks!
