I am not how the speaker was able to get to the answer choice of seven. I am also not understanding what this question is asking? Does it mean what kind of question type this?

The comes down to understanding what is being asked. Here, the question is asking the minimum number of different salaries, which is the same as the maximum number of people earning the same. Since only n and l can have the same salary as someone else, that means that there must be seven distinct salaries.
