Table Setting 102

This table setting is incorrect?  Why?  Whenever you set a table, a fork is married to a knife.  The salad fork always has a knife.  On the right side, a knife is missing.  Plus, where has the napkin gone?  Why is the soup bowl there?  This setting needs improvement.

This setting is almost correct.  The utensils are married, but the napkin?  The napkin should be on the left of the last fork or on the middle of the plate.

Finally, Emily Post gets it right.
