If J is more popular than L, and S is more popular than P, then which one of the following must be true of the ranking?

Why is it answer A?

I would like greater clarification as to why the other options do not work.

From the video explanation, working it out the same way puts P as 7th. So why could E be the correct answer?

Hello! The reason why E can't be the answer is because the question states "Must Be True". The problem with E is that P COULD be seventh because ordinarily P could still be sixth and compliment the rule that S is more popular than P. The answer choice is A because as we saw in the hypothetical to question 1 and in the conditions that J is more popular than Q, well now it's J is more popular than Q and L. Hope this helps!
