    Please provide full details of the book including authors, and the whole question because many of us don't have the book and can't therefore verify the answer.

    Agreed! By the way, our questions are designed so that you can practice them multiple times and start to spot the errors. That's why some are similar. Really trains you to look for the concepts.

    Have you any idea whether there is any difference in the printed version, or PDF? Please look here and scroll down. I think you are correct that you have found a “new” misprint.

    I have no clue if they are written from same source ("Material submitted by authors") but i think they are the same.
    for the link you just shared https://www.selikoff.net/ocp11-1/ i already red it carefully before buying the ebook, and also i keep revisiting it for any reported typos and/or errata. Thank you my friend

    Confirmed and you are now in the errata as a reporter! Thanks for letting us know.

    The printed and Kndle editions are supposed to come from the same source. And all errors "that belong to the authors" are in both. Every once in a while there is a rendering error that only hits the Kindle.
