The print out work books that were sent to me have a different question. Are they not consistent?

Happy to help explain this question.

The question asks, "If V is more popular than Q and J is less popular
than L, then which one of the following could be true of the ranking?"

Based on the rules, we know we have a 7-slot game.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _

We also know that J and L aren't as popular as H

H-J and H-L

J is more popular than Q

J-Q

S and V are each less popular than L

L-S and L-V

P and S are each less popular than Q

Q-S and Q-P

S isn't 7th

Combining these rules with the additional info we've been given in the
question, we know that if J isn't as popular as L, then L has to be
ranked second. This is because J and L are both leaders of all of the
other pieces in the game, and H has to go first since it's before both
of them.

If V is more popular than Q, then this means that both V and J are
after L but before Q. This means that V and J could be in either 3 or
4. Q has to be 5th. Because S can't go in 7, then S has to be 6th.
This leaves P for the 7th spot. Because J and V could each go in 3 or
4, then this means that (D) could be true, as it states that J is more
popular than V. Thus, (D) is the correct answer choice.

Does this make sense? Let us know if you have any more questions!
