Hints: (1) You must calculate the changes from the base of the tree to the top. Include common ancestor state changes! (2) Always find, use, and report the most parsimonious option. (3) Tree length = the actual number of character state changes for ALL characters on the phylogeny. (4) The best CI one could get is 1.0.
