I'm doing a math problem and I'm getting two different answers based on the interpretation of a particular sentence. The question is:
Sanjay, Ajay, and Anushka are employees of a company that has branches in Chennai, Bangalore, and Mumbai. The company sends each of them to one of these cities at random. Let X be a random variable that denotes the number of employees assigned to their favorite cities. If Chennai, Bangalore, and Mumbai are the favorite cities of Sanjay, Ajay, and Anushka, respectively, then find X's possible values.
My interpretation of the line in bold is that "two or more employees can end up in one city". But I'm confusing it with "each of the three employees gets sent to a distinct city". These two interpretations give two different answers. What is a reasonable interpretation of this sentence?
