Caller's Arguments:

Also, I was under the impression that Lower Deck was the one adjacent
to the others. It's defintely ambiguous.

========================================================================

Gratuitous Arguments by omd:

I thought the wording was a little confusing, but
unambiguous: "which" refers to the nearer object, Engine Room.

========================================================================

Gratuitous Arguments by G.:

While I'm the one that raised the question, I also
thought it was probably intended to be this way (and as Tiger says,
it was), but that it was confusing enough that I should double-check
in the discussion forum.  -G.

Judge Wooble's Arguments:

I judge FALSE.  "where Lower Deck is adjacent to Enginge Room which is
also adjacent to Bridge" may be phrased a bit awkwardly, but the only
reading I can see making sense is that "which" refers to "Enginge
Room".  "Also" is misleading as at first we would infer that something
else is adjacent to the Bridge, but this can be seen as taking
advantage of the implicit reflexivity of adjacency.  We could rewrite
as "Engine Room is adjacent to Lower Deck and Engine Room is also
adjacent to Bridge", where the "also" still refers to the second
relation but makes the reference to the first relation more explicit.
