In the game of Clue, there are 3 playing cards in an envelope. One card is a weapon, one is a room, and one is a person. All of the other cards are dealt to the players. If someone guesses that it was "Miss Scarlet with the wrench in the kitchen" and you have one or more of these cards, then you must show the person who guessed one of the cards.

Original Statement: "The 3 cards in the envelope are Miss Scarlet, the Wrench, and the Kitchen."

Negation of Statement: "One of the cards, either Miss Scarlet or the Wrench or the Kitchen is in my hand or another player's hand."

Interesting question. It seems to me that cherishing something or someone would include feeling love for that thing or person. Sounds like it would have been a great discussion! :)

What do you think the difference is between love and cherish? I was teaching this section to my high school class and this question came up. Made for great discussion, but the majority - including myself - thought cherishing something implied loving it and vice versa. Help? Thanks! :)
