Question

I do not understand how to even approach this question at all. I am struggling with sequencing games in general please help!!! If I could have it broken down in a concise way that would be really helpful.

Hi @abburr,
For this question we'd set up our diagram with 9 spots, but remember that we might not use all 9 spots because some partners could be at the same salary position.
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
We'd then diagram our rules as:

K-I-F-M-G-J-H
K-L-N

This question is asking us to pair N and someone else - we could pair N with any variable besides K and L because they have to come before N. Even if we paired N all the way at the end of the long ordering chain with H, L is always going to be to the left of H, so it is false that lopez's salary is less than Hae's.

If you're struggling with ordering games, I'd recommend checking out the sequencing/linear games lessons again and also taking a look at the linear or sequencing office hours at the beginner level to see how these questions are set up and solved in real time!
