Finally a puzzle I can do! This literally took me 10 seconds to work out. I got a little distracted at first, thinking that the '???' boxes must be an identical colour.
But then I swiftly realised that the colour was irrelevant, as some boxes can't have other boxes next to them or above them.
A good confidence booster after a shaky start.
The note says that the correct box is the same colour as one below it.
Narrow down your choices to those boxes that fit that description.
You don't need to know the details that have been smudged out to find the correct box.
It says that the correct box has a box above, below, to the left, and to the right of it.
That should help you further narrow down your choices.
Here are two major findings from the note that will help you select the one correct box.
1. The box below it is the same colour.
2. There are boxes above, below, to the left, and to the right of it.
Which box meets both of these criteria? If you apply both conditions, you'll find the correct box!
If the box has a box above, below, to the right, and to the left of it, you can then rule out all boxes from the top and bottom rows.
You can also rule out any boxes in the leftmost or rightmost columns.
