255.    Show on physical grounds, that the 1st inversion of the Major triad is inferior to its other two positions.
256.    Prove from acoustical considerations, that the 2nd inversion of a Minor Triad is inferior to its other two positions.
258.  Why are Major Triads as a rule more harmonious than Minor Triads ?
259.  In selecting the most harmonious distributions of the Major Triad* what intervals should be avoided, and why ?
260.  Give examples of the more perfect and less perfect distributions of the Major Triads.
261.  What considerations guide us in selecting the more harmonious distributions of the Minor Triad ?
262.  What three distributions of the Minor Triad have only one dis­turbing differential ?
263.  How are consonant Tetrads formed from consonant Triads ?
264.  Compare the relative harmoniousness of the following two Tetrads
265.  What considerations serve as a guide in selecting the best positions and distributions of a Major Tetrad? Give Helmholtz's rule.
266.  Why may neither the 3rd nor 5th of a Major Triad be duplicated by the double Octave ?
267.  Give examples of good positions and distributions of the Major Tetrad.
268.  State any rule you know of, concerning the distribution of the 1st inversion of the Major Tetrad.
269.  Within what limits should the 2nd inversion of a Major Tetrad lie?
270.  Write down a Minor Tetrad which has only one disturbing differential.
271.  State any rule you know of, concerning the distribution of the 2nd mversion of the Minor Tetrad.
