First ALS: a,b,c,d,e Five cells with six numbers 178925

Second ALS: p,q,r,s Four cells with five numbers 17835

The common restricted is (1) in p and a

The 5's in d and e point to the 5 in both z's

as does the 5 in s

What is wrong in what I have done? Neither of the 5's in the z's can be excluded. I thought I had this pretty well mastered...guess not.

Any and all help is appreciated.
