on October 3, 2018
Can you please explain?
Can someone please explain the correct answer?

@Jaimee-Salgado if W is shown immediately before R, the following scenario would result:
WR > S
This is entirely based on the condition set forth in the question stem (i.e. WR) and rule 3 (R > S).
This means that the WT block is not possible, which invokes the contrapositive of rule 4.
This allows us to deduce that T > W (i.e. Waterloo is not shown earlier than Terry).
So we now have the following chain:
T > WR > S
We know T has to be on the half hour but with 3 shows behind it (i.e. W R and S), 2:30 and 3:30 are eliminated as possibilities, which means that T would have to appear in 1:30:
2 W R
3 S (note: S could also be at 3:30 instead of 3)
But we have nowhere to place GG, so (B) cannot be true.
Hope that helps! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
