Hi,

I am stuck on one of the free puzzles. I'd like to finish it without guessing. I have attached my work so far. Thanks.

Look at the 2 beginning in row 15 (2 3 1). If the 2 were placed in cols 1 and 2, and you followed up vertically with the clues in col 1 and col 2 (the 2 and 4 respectively) there would be a conflict in row 14 which can only have 1 cell filled. Therefore row 15 col 1 must be blank. The same logic can be applied for the same 2 in row 15 being placed in cols 4 and 5. When followed up vertically with the clues in cols 4 and 5 (the 7 and 3 respectively), it results in the same conflict in row 14, there would be 2 cells filled where there can only be 1, so row 15 col 5 must be blank. Hope this makes sense.

I know you have finished, but there is another spot you could have continued from - in the seventh row the second square must be blank or there would be two in a row filled - this allows you to place the 4 in the second column.
