# If Nassar's salary is the same as that of one other partner of the firm, which one of the following must be false?

Is this statement correct, the information about N is non consequential cause L can’t have a lower salary H anyway due to the the rules?

@andrewlords, happy to help!

No, that is incorrect. If we were not given the condition in this question that N must make the same amount as another partner, it would be possible for L to make less than H while still following the rules. For example, this is a valid arrangement in which L makes less than H: (most) KIFMGJHLN (least)

Be careful with this setup. We are basically given two chains:
(1) K - I - F - M - G - J - H
(2) K - L - N

We only know the relationship between variables in the same chain, and K is the single variable in both chains. Therefore, we could put L anywhere after K in the first chain (assuming we keep N after it). This gives us the option of placing LN after H.

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