Homework Question #7

I have a question on #7. The correct answer is C I picked E. While I see how C could be the answer, I still can't find my error in my answer of E. Can you explain to me why E is not correct? I want to understand where my reasoning is wrong.

Hi @cglee,

Thanks for asking! I think the question I'm getting pointed to is the wrong one. I'm looking at PT #4 LG #1 Q#1 about the law firm game, which doesn't have the same characters that you're using. Which question are you asking about? Let me know and we'll try to get back to you.

@cglee, happy to help!

(E) lists the sequence H, L, V, J, Q, P, S

This is invalid because S is placed 7th. Rule #5 tells us that "S is not seventh." Therefore, (E) is incorrect because it violates Rule #5.

Does that make sense? Please let us know if you have any other questions!
