(1NT range is 15-17)

Mentor: Let's analyze . . .My 3 is showing a 5th and to do so at 3 level I must have 10 points. So the only person knowing we have 25 points is North who holds 17. So bidding a mere 3 shows a minimum hand of 12-14.

Mentee: Why does 3 show 5th ? Am I the only one who doesn't know that?

Mentor: New minor forcing. nmf = when new minor and partner has bid NT.

Mentee: I did not know it was on after interference.

Mentor: Whether 1NT or 2NT, interference irrelevant. It is your 2NT which instigates a NMF bid if it is made by partner. You didn’t open a minor granted. But think with me. It is North who must accept the invite to game in No Trump or game in knowing south has 10 points and in this case 5 cards in .
