Hi! Y is unable to go into slot 5 because of the second rule that tells us that the fifth audition must be recorded. The only singers that will have their auditions recorded are K and L according to the rules, so we know that only K/L will be placed in slot 5 and we can write that into our initial diagram for the fifth audition spot. Remember that this game has a multi-linear element to it with the recorded vs. unrecorded auditions and write in an extra row to capture that aspect.
