And so it remains a team effort. But your arrangement wins by one test, I believe.
Your 13th test distinguishes the last pair, so no 14th test, agreed.

My 13th test distinguishes my only pair, so no 14th test. Unfortunately, my 12th test touches 3, so it takes two more to find which one for sure.

This is why your solution ending in 3 pairs is better than mine, ending in a trio and a pair.

Good job, Y-san. Hontoo ni utsukushii desu!
