Can I pretend to be casting from a spell scroll, but instead cast normally, or vice versa?

I’m wondering if, while I’m casting normally I can pretend to be casting from the scroll I’m ‘reading’ in front of my eyes. Or if I can do the opposite, read a scroll while pretending to perform a spell using falsified verbal, somatic, and material components. I have devised this as a shenanigan for fooling a mage with counterspell. Which is the main strategy my character would rely on for dealing with pesky mages.

Note that 5e doesn’t specify what it means to read. So I’m using the lexical definition that google gives for what it means to read:

“[To] look at and comprehend the meaning of written or printed matter by mentally interpreting the characters or symbols of which it is composed.

This would free up the verbal component needed to cast spells. I’m fine if an answer refutes this last point as I understand 5e doesn’t define the requirements for reading a scroll.

How did Vice detect voting machines connected to the internet? [closed]

What method would you use to determine if a machine is a voting machine? do they give off a unique signature? Did someone give them a list of all IP addresses associated with voting machines and they pinged them to see if they were online?

Is there any canon reason why urban werewolves haven’t destroyed vampires (or vice versa)?

Werewolf:TA has a couple of tribes of urban werewolves: the Glass Walkers and the Bone Gnawers. Plus those members of the Black Spiral Dancers who hang about in Pentex boardrooms or areas of urban blight.

However, in the games of Vampire I’ve been in, the GMs stress that werewolves are unstoppable killing machines and to avoid them at all costs. The GMs’ campaign canon is that the werewolves are all out in the countryside, and all the vampires are in the city (apart from the occasional Gangrel).

The stats for a werewolf in VTM5e continues this tradition of hyping them up to be combat monsters by making them Potence 5, Fortitude 5, Celerity 4, plus a Strength 6 and Dex 6 when in crinos form.

Meanwhile, WWTA tells PC werewolves that all vampires are “of the wyrm”. Spot a vampire using your Sense Wyrm gift, go into kill, kill, kill mode.

I recall the Black Spiral Dancers had a temporary alliance with the Sabbat vampires in The Book of the Wyrm. But that doesn’t explain what is going on with the Camarilla, the Glass Walkers and the Bone Gnawers.

So is there any sourcebook for either VTM or WWTA which explains why vampires and urban werewolf tribes haven’t annihilated each other? Or why one side hasn’t eliminated the other?

Reduction from Independent set to Restricted independent set and vice versa

Independent Set

Input: undirected graph G = (V, E) and an integer k ≥ 0.

Output: does G have an independent set S ⊆ V of size k (Yes or No).

Restricted Independent Set

Input: undirected graph G = (V, E), a vertex u ∈ V , and aninteger k ≥ 0,

Output: does G have an independent set S ⊆ V of size k that includes u? (Yes or No).

Is it possible to reduce independent set to restricted independent set and is it possible to reduce restricted independent set to independent set?
