I am having a hard time figuring out how to get to the correct answer for number 17. Thanks.

@Vica,

Happy to help.

We're told O is in 1965 and M is in 1967.

_ _ _ _ O _ M _

"If Owens joined the firm in 1965 and MacNeil joined it in 1967, one
can determine the years in which exactly how many of the other
partners joined the firm?"

We know that

H - -N - O

K - J - M

N and J are both before G and G is before I

I has all of the remaining pieces before it, so we know I has to go
last in 1968. Additionally, G has all of the remaining pieces before
it except for I, so G must go in 1966. The other pieces could move
around some, so we know that we can determine the spots of 2 of the
other partners, I and G. Thus, (B) is the correct answer choice.

_ _ _ _ O G M I

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any other questions!
