I think I would read it as applying section C.1. first, not finding any 
plain hunting hunt bells, finding two treble dodging hunt bells, both of 
which are little so both are principal hunts, then from C.2. applying B.2. 
for all principal hunt bells for each of (a), (b) etc.
B.2.(a) doesn't apply
B.2.(b) doesn't apply
B.2.(c) is considered for both hunt bells, and each hunt bell must satisfy 
Bell 1 satisfies it, but bell 6 has an internal place as it goes from 5ths 
place to 4ths (3rds is made)
Consider B.2.(d)
Bell 1 has no cross sections
Bell 6 has 2 cross sections, and 3rds is made while it moves from 5ths 
place to 4ths or vice versa.
Therefore it is surprise.

I'm still learning this, so am happy to hear other ideas.
