If any selected Entrant has incorrectly answered the mathematical skill-testing question, he/she will be disqualified without any liability to the Released Parties, and another Entrant will be randomly selected from that Contest Week or for the Contest Closing Date draws, as applicable, and the above process will be repeated until such time as there is one (1) winner per Contest Week and two (2) winners on the Contest Closing Date, or no more eligible Entries are available.
