You can not have ENIs in an AZ that is different from the instance

In the diagram showing a multi-homed EC2 instance with multiple ENIs, the video states that each subnet is in a different AZ.  This is not possible.  ENIs are AZ bound and must be in the same AZ as the instance it attaches to.

That is true. "You can attach a network interface in one subnet to an instance in another subnet in the same VPC; however, both the network interface and the instance must reside in the same Availability Zone.". Hope the instructor clarifies or corrects the lesson to avoid wrong info.
