    I don't believe you have interpreted the question correctly. For example,
    for methyl red at pH 3.5. I look in my text and I see MR changes in the range of 4.2 to 6.3 (R-Y); below pH 4.2 it will be red and above 6.3 it will be yellow. Therefore, I would answer that at pH = 3.5 MR would be red.
