I don't think I understand what this question is replacing as for the G condition?

So we're trying to replace the rule that G is shown on the hour. If we look at C, it tells us that it cannot be shown in the second or fourth slots (there are six slots total.) G also cannot be shown starting on the 6th slot, since it takes up two slots. This means that in effect, it can only be shown on the 1st, third, and fifth slots, which are the times of 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00. This perfectly replaces the rule! Does that make sense or would you prefer a diagram?

It makes sense now! Thank you.

Can someone please explain why D wouldn't work? In all my previous hypotheticals, whenever G was in the 3rd slot R was in the 1st.

On D, you could have WTGRS, so R does not have to be first.
