If you try to setup templates for the whole game there just aren't very many inferences to make. However, I did find that for this particular question it was helpful to just split it into two universes, which is much faster than trying to sketch out all five answer choices.
All you know starting out is that S is 4 and R is 3:
There are only two spots to place the QF block, and then for each scenario there is an open slot for the investigator. Since all three investigators have already been used, we know it's going to be a repeat:
G and I can't be next to each other, so we can make a couple more inferences there:
Now there can only be one investigator that does two interviews, and we know that G and H have to have the same interviewer, so the investigator that doubles up has to be assigned to one of them. From there you can fill out the entire first scenario:
Now if you look at the answer choices, we've shown in the first scenario that F can be interviewed first, so (A) is correct. You'll also see that all of the other answer choices can't be true because they don't fit into either template.
Hope that helps!
