To answer the substitution question, you have to look at the effect of the original rule and see which of the answer rules would result in the same inference. For this game, we have 6 people - F G H J K L - that are nominated to 4 posts - M T C C.

The rules tell us that:
(1) F/G or neither
(2) H(c) - > J (m)
~J(m) -> ~H (c)
(3) T = F v H
(4) K = ~C
This last rule tells us that K can neither be a nominee for C nor for T per rule 3, hence if he is one of the nominees, he could only be a nominee for M (answer choice E)
