I am sorry I am a bit slow and still have several questions.

-So I play 3 days each for the first two sims but get to play through the whole young adult and adult period of the last sim, right?
-Does the 'household income' mean the total money of the household or only the 'income' during that period?
-When I separate the household, is there any restriction to the lots they can move in? Only empty ones? So each sim will start with 20k in hands, correct?
-Am I allowed to garden? The income is limited to selling collectors, so income from gardening doesn't count but to finish the collection, am I allowed to garden for that?
-I assume that each sim cannot help the others by any means, right? No connections between them.

I am sorry for asking a lot of questions, some may seem nonsense but I want to join this challenge and play correctly by the rules. Thank you.

No, you'll play each household 3 days and then move on to the next.

Your Sims can move anywhere they can afford. Keep in mind, though, that they won't be able to sell furniture, etc., as that would contribute to household income. And yes, each will start with 20K.

You're allowed to garden and to sell what you grow. Fruits and vegetables are collectibles, so they count.

I'm not sure what you mean by "helping." Perhaps you should PM the team with specifics.

Windhavyn -- I deleted the actual names of your collections. No need for that yet. :)

Thank you so much. Your answers make so much sense I feel real stupid -_-.

Major rule change:

The May 25th patch added 2 days to the Short lifespan for YA and Adult. You'll need to play 6 3-day sessions and 1 2-day session for each of your Sims to get 20 days for each Sim.

If you have already completed this challenge, this doesn't apply to you. If 1 or 2 of your Sims have already become Elders, you'll need to adjust accordingly.

About this change...

Before the patch, your sim aged up to elder at 8 am on the fourth Sunday (21 sim days after start) assuming you play a single sim from CAS to elder. Translated to this challenge, shouldn't we have 7 three-day turns with each sim?

As @lesleyj42 pointed out, the game does give you that extra day, so the rule was changed to:

The May 25th patch added 2 days to the Short lifespan for YA and Adult. You'll need to play 7 3-day sessions for each of your Sims to get 20 days for each Sim.
