@annaj,

Absolutely!

"Which of the following CANNOT be the group of employees assigned to the retailers booth."

All of these answer choices have 3 employees at the retail booth. That means that we are dealing with two possible formats:

O _ _
R _ _ _
V _

or

O _
R _ _ _
V _ _

Pay extra close attention to the GM block, and note that they cannot go to the organizer booth. G, H, and M all cannot be at the organizer booth. F and K cannot be at the visitor booth.

A.
R: F G M
This forces K into the organizers booth, but that should work for either diagram. No problems here.

B.
R: F H K
We now have to place the GM block at the visitors group. This leaves L for the organizers booth. We're using the second diagram, but no problems here.

C.
R: F H L
Again, GM has to go to the visitors booth. K must go to the organizers booth. No problems here.

D.
R: F K L
GM is sent to the visitors booth. Who is left? Only H. There is nowhere for H to go. He is blocked from the organizers booth. This is our correct answer.

E.
R: G L M
F and K have to go to the organizers booth. This leaves H for the visitors booth. This matches diagram 1. No problems here.
