Why D not A?

Hi So when I originally tried this game based on my set up which was: Y—T Y-O-P-Z Also the rules states that 1st and last cannot be of the same person In this question D says TXZ Z is by G The remaining rules forces Y to be first in order for O and P to be in 2 and 3. This contradicts the rule. Whereas A does not contradict the rule since OPZ being last means that Z is G but you can put X as first since it’s a floater and can be represented by either H or L. Could you please tell me where I’m going wrong with this question. Thank you

@farnoushsalimian, happy to help!

Your setup and understanding of the rules is correct, but you seem to have misread the question. We are asked to identify the answer choice that lists all of the songs that could go in the sixth and final place. The question does not ask which of the answer choices contains a valid possibility for the placements 4, 5, and 6.

Since we are looking for the songs that could be performed last, we know that we can eliminate any songs that we noted have to be performed before other songs in our setup. Therefore, we can eliminate Y (which must come before T as well as O, P, and Z), O (which must come before P and Z), and P (which must come before Z). We are left with Z, T, and X as possibilities for the sixth and final spot.

Does this make sense? Please let us know if you have any additional questions and best of luck with your studies!
