Im sorry, but I  might be slow at learning this multiple dependent claim issue. Can you guys explain it in more simpler terms?
 
What in the wording of the claim language declares the dependent claim as an improper multiple dependent claim?
 
Why is "Claim 5: a gadget according to claims 1-3, in which..." an improper dependent claim?  I feel that it is a proper dependent claim because claim 5 in this example further limits claims 1-3.
 
Some please help me, I am so confused with multiple dependent claim language.

One big rule is that a multiple dependent can never depend on another multiple dependent.

 Claim Does Not Refer Back in the Alternative Only  
should be "any of claims 1-3"
