  The correct answer is B. False

Unfortunately, I could not find a parts list or part count for this set. However,
the front and back of the box show evidence for the changes I'm requesting.

This one is incorrect. The part count should remain at 4. It looks like the
red 2 x 2 brick count should e 7, though, instead of 6. The total part count
should be 40 based on all the parts seen on the front of the box.

Still wrong. It should go up to five. Clearly I should've studied this
box more carefully before making change requests.

It is good to be carefull and doublecheck things and try to be as accurate as
possible, yet, in a case like this, without actual content or at least a good
view on the content, I do not think it is/was wise to confirm accuracy of the
set based on just the images of the box.

Cheers, Eric

You're right, sort of. It is true that my confirmation of the accuracy of
this set doesn't mean much since it was based on Set Box/Picture (not like
the relative certainty of confirming based on Sealed Set Contents, for example).
However, Set Box/Picture is a valid method of confirming accuracy, just as it
is a valid method of inventorying a set.

I've been intermittently checking through old Duplo inventories and my confirmation
of accuracy allows me to verify at a glance which sets I've checked and which
ones I haven't. The front of this set box presumably shows all the contents
and the only thing truly blocked from view is the tree trunk on the right-hand
side of the picture which appears to be constructed of 4 yellow 2 x 2 Duplo blocks.
Therefore, I'm fairly confident that the set inventory is now accurate with
the changes I made, which is why I confirmed the accuracy of the set.
