    $\begingroup$ Still working on proof, but I think it's probably that squiggly one, next to the one with the zigzags... $\endgroup$ – Alconja Jan 3 '18 at 22:58

    $\begingroup$ As a bonus question - what is the meaning of the eyestrain-inducing option D? $\endgroup$ – Rubio Jan 4 '18 at 10:23

    $\begingroup$ Do your thoughts here change if I mention that an I has three segments and not just one? $\endgroup$ – Rubio Jan 4 '18 at 13:07
