There are 12 knots in each complete series of knots.

So, if the last knot is yellow, the total number of knots could be a multiple of 12.

However, the last knot being yellow could also mean that the last series contains 11 knots with 1 yellow, if the total number of available yellow knots is not a multiple of 2.

So the total number of knots could be a multiple of 12 or a multiple of 12, minus 1.

Looking at the answer choices there is no multiple of 12.

However, there is a multiple of 12, 96, minus 1 95,C
