35th IMO 1994 shortlist

Problem G2 (cont)

Almost the entire argument is correct. It is true that HL < KL. But the diagram is seriously misleading. Take ABD to be approximately equilateral with C close to B. Then the points K, C Y, N lie in that order on the line KN and the points X, H, P, N, D lie in that order on the line DX. N does not lie inside ABM.
