Topic: Halo Size

The original 12 Rings were said to be 30,000 kilometers in diameter but were replaced with 10,000 kilometer Rings after the originals were destroyed at the battle of the Forerunner Capitol. However one of the original Rings was said to have survived and successfully made it back to the Ark. Mendicant Bias' Ring also survived but was eventually reduced to 10,000 kilometers. So what about the other Ring which made it back to the Ark? Are there now six 10,000 kilometer Rings and one 30,000 kilometer Ring or did the Forerunner also reduce the other Ring after making repairs to it?

Thank you in advance for any help you can give to clear this up.

Complications abound, Thomas! Can't provide too many clues... But this problem and the number of rings are on my mind as I finish revisions on SILENTIUM.
