I had trouble with this setup as well. Is there a way to get a video explanation for this set of questions? Thank you

Hi all, thanks for your posts. Often, the first question on a game tests your understanding of the rules provided in the setup. This game gives us five indented rules:
(1) there has to be at least two spaces between H and M (or M and H)
(2) G is the day before K (so it's a GK block)
(3) M has to come before J (M > J)
(4) F comes before K (F > K) but F comes after L (L > F). Putting this together: L > F > K
(5) L cannot be second

The most efficient way to approach a question like Question 1 here is check to see whether each answer choice is consistent with the given rules.

We can eliminate (A), because it violates part of the fourth given rule (L has to come before F, but in (A), F is first).

We can eliminate (B) because it violates the fifth given rule (L cannot be second).

We can eliminate (C) because it violates the third given rule (M has to come before J).

We can eliminate (E) because it violates the first given rule (there has to be two spaces, at least, between H/M and M/H).

Thus, by process of elimination, we can select (D). Hope this helps.

@alymathieu,

We're working on adding video content for more problems. In the
meantime, if you have a specific question on this game, let me know.
I'll be happy to provide a written response here on the message board.
