Moving the Goal Posts Yet Again !!!

M301 TMA03 question 3 (iii) relates to the ‘dining philosophers problem’ and yet the course text says that practical activity 3.1 is optional and that Bacon section 17.5 should be omitted. Therefore my question for the M301 course teams is this…

Has the course team redefined the meaning of the word optional to now mean mandatory, thus meaning that we now have to do practical activity 3.1 and read Bacon section 17.5, or is question 3 (iii) optional as well and we will get full marks for the question irrespective of whether we answer the question or not?
