How to build this circuit in a circuit builder simulation thing?

Here you go.
Call Switch 3 the one closest to the battery, Switch one will be the top right switch and switch two will be the bottom right.
thank you so much my friend
Does this seem to be what it needs to be?
Are you taking a class, or was this for a project you're doing? If you need some more help with designing circuits, Khan Academy has some "alright" resources for circuits.
I’m taking a class, the unit is over now. The teacher takes hours to reply so I had to ask here. You answered my question completely. Thank you
You’re welcome and good luck in your studies! I wish you the best.
You as well!
For extra points, wire up the wolf, goat and cabbage problem!
the switch leg from the third switch is the “hot” for the other switches. is that enough to get you started?
phet.colorado.edu/sims/html/circuit-construction-kit-dc/latest/circuit-construction-kit-dc_en.html is the thing I’m using.
I don’t know what that is
See if this can help you get started.
Switches 1 and 2 will be in parallel with each other. Switch 3 will be in series with both 1 and 2.
If switch 1 and 2 are in parallel, you can't achieve requirement 1.
See my post above. I think you're misinterpreting what it is saying. If only switch 1 is the only one open, then lamps one and two would be extinguished. This means that switch 2 and 3 are closed and lamp 3 is illuminated.
If switch 2 is the only one open, then switches 1 and 3 are closed. This means lamps 1 and 2 would be illuminated and lamp 3 would be extinguished.
If switch 1 and 2 are both closed and switch 3 is open, no current can flow (not a complete circuit) so all lamps will be extinguished.
See my post above with the link to the program OP is using. I think that's the right solution.
Let's also name the lights. (L1, L2, L3)
SW2 is in series with L2. This series piece ( SW2 and L2) is then put in parallel with L1
SW1 feeds the whole thing I wrote above. Meaning, SW1 feeds L1 and SW2.
SW3 feeds SW1 and L3.
