Hi. I am just making sure,

Step 2: identify any rules or restrictions that connect to the rule in question and the variables involved in those rules

Are rough equivalent of/What the authors of LG Bible is asking the readers to perform are as roughly same as

Step 4 out of entire step 6 series solving LG Justify Question,

"Look for "Next Level" Connection" (i believe in Rule Substitution case, connecting to the most important/restricted variables/space are not as importantly regarded in solving justify Question)

Sounds about right, lathlee! We are talking there about any inferences that were formed out of interaction with the rule being removed or altered. For example, if there was a rule that "if K is included, P is not" and another rule that "if T is not included, K is" (these are borrowed from the infamous Fruit Stand game from December 2001), we would infer that if P is in, T is in, because P in knocks K out, which forces T in. If we were then told to remove the rule that if T is out, K is in, we would also have to remember to remove that inference about P and T, because it only came about because of the interaction of those two rules, one of which no longer applies.
