TTAB Test: Which of these Three Mere Descriptiveness Refusals Was Reversed?

One of these three Section 2(e)(1) refusals was reversed. Put on your TTAB judicial robes and see if you can figure out how these recent appeals came out. [Answer will be found in first comment].

In re De Beers UK Limited, Serial No. 86978658 (March 27, 2017) [not precedential]. [Refusal to register MARKET PRICE QUOTE for gemological services, jewelry remounting, and related services].

In re MN Group, LLC, Serial No. 86879481 (March 30, 2017) [not precedential]. [Refusal of PRESS PAPERS for "providing a website featuring resources, namely, non-downloadable publications in the nature of newsletters, white papers, press releases in the field of health, education, and business"].

In re Three Lollies LLC, Serial No. 86779106 (March 31, 2017) [Refusal of TUMMY NATURALS for "medicinal preparations for the mouth to be applied in the form of drops, capsules, tablets and compressed tablets; nausea treatment preparations" [TUMMY disclaimed]].

Not much reasoning other than "if it's vague it can't be descriptive" PRESS and PAPERS are vague terms?? Hey, I'll take it and I'll be citing it A LOT!
