I have had trouble understanding that paragraph.

Looking at the FCOM section more closely, it appears that there are 8 groups of flaps. 6 are for LED's with three groups on each wing(inboard, mid-span, and outboard). There are two groups on the training edge(inboards and outboards).It appears if an inboard or mid-span goes to secondary mode, its symmetrical group on the other wing goes to secondary. Is that correct?
