I am not talking about d.2. I am talking about d.contents.
d.2 was not anywhere in your picture.

d.2 is not in evidence here. The vertical dimension is d.contents,
I thought that you said that d was not part of the contents of A, even

c-d link on purpose and ZigZag has no right to disregard that.
