Three figures are used in the pool, and these are available as separate .jpeg and .pdf files.

Users of the pool documents are free to correct minor typographical and punctuation errors, including obvious minor omissions. Such corrections must not cause a change in the meaning of a question or any of the proposed answers to the questions. Also, since rule citation references are not part of the questions themselves and are included only to assist when looking up the applicable section of the rules, errors in the reference identifiers are not considered adequate reason for removal of a question from the pool.
