Game set up

I didn't get this question, and I think it's because of my game setup. Can you please explain why A is the right answer?

@katia, first of all, (A) isn't the right answer, so if you're referring to another question, let me know. However, I'll give you the game setup for now.

This is a linear game, so you can start by setting it up with:
_ _ _ _ _ _
1 2 3 4 5 6

Then start into the rules.

Rule on is that G is on a lower number than P. Since G_ _ _ _ _ _
1 2 3 4 5 6
P G

Rule 2 is that R is on 1 or 6, which you can diagram as:
_ _ _ _ _ _
1 2 3 4 5 6
P R R R R G

Rule 3 puts S or W on 3, leaving the diagram as:

_ _ W/S _ _ _
1 2 3 4 5 6
P R R R R G
G
L
P

The final rule is that L must be immediately to the right of S, so [SL]. This eliminates S from 6 as an option and L from 1 as an option, leaving this as your final setup.
_ _ W/S _ _ _
1 2 3 4 5 6
P R R R R G
L G S
L
P

Question 1 asks which of the following is impossible if you replace "L" in the final rule with "W." What this does is eliminates the rule that keeps S out of 6 and L out of 1, but ties down [SW] to being either in slots 2-3 or slots 3-4. Thus, (D) is the correct answer because if S and W must be adjacent, putting S in slot 5 violates rule #3.

I hope that helps. Let me know if you have other questions or if you were wanting an explanation on a different question on this game. If it is a different question, just ask for the explanation here, so we can keep the game explanation in the same place.
