It's my first time doing this so it took me a while to see my mistake. But one lesson I have learned from this mistake is that IT'S SO IMPORTANT TO LOOK AT THE QUESTION; WHAT ARE YOU BEING ASKED? Once you notice the details within the question then you can really begin to work on your answer. The question is being asked from Lopez's perspective as he relates to Nassar (see rule 2) and then as Malloy joins Nassar he brings the set of rules that follow him. So for the answer in this question not only must we count the three people who get paid less than Malloy but also Malloy and Nassar and that equals 5.

I do not understand the questions. I did my setup and I still am incorrect.

why do we not include jacoby as someone making less salary than lopez? why does it stop at Glassan?

@kdehoyos, Jacoby and Hae both count toward this 5. If N and M have the same salary, and L is higher than both of them, then L is higher than M, N, G, J, and H (5 partners). I hope that helps.

@Myriam, happy to help!

Please know that you can access a detailed video explanation by clicking the play symbol in the upper right corner of the question.

Nevertheless, I will walk you through the question in writing as well.

From our game setup, we have the following sequence:
K - I - F - M - G - J - H
- L - N

This question tells us that M and N need to have equal salaries.

For this to happen, we need K, I, F, and L to precede the variables M and N and G, J, H to follow them.

The question asks "AT LEAST" how many variables must be lower than L. So, let's put L in the latest possible spot that it can go while still keeping N and M equal. This would be spot 4.

So, M, N, G, J, and H would follow L in our sequence. This means a total of 5 variables would have lower salaries than L, making (C) "5" the correct answer choice.

Does that make sense? Please let us know if you have any other questions!
