The correct answer choice is (C)
This question asks for the additional piece of information which will determine the placement of every employee. A quick glance at the answers shows that each is in the same form: a single variable is assigned to a specified space. Thus, the answer must be powerful enough to affect all of the variables. Interestingly, only V isn’t addressed in any of the rules, and so the correct answer must address V in some fashion in order to make sure V is placed. This makes answer choice (C) a likely candidate to analyze first, as (C) is the only answer to include V.
When V is assigned space #3, then R must be assigned space #4, and T and Y must be assigned spaces #1 and #2 respectively. X must be assigned to space #6, leaving only space #5 available for S. Thus, assigning V to space #3 creates a single T-Y-V-R-S-X sequence, and answer choice (C) therefore is correct.
