can you explain a little bit about b and c? And by the way, the deduction was available to cover room and board expenses to attend college since it is tuition related, right?

a) The § 222 deduction is a deduction for AGI, b) The deduction is not available when the lifetime learning credit is used, c) The student involved is not a dependent of the taxpayer, d) The education need not be job related
