Complete Question Explanation
(The complete setup for this game can be found here: lsat/viewtopic.php?f=137&t=12861)

The correct answer choice is (D)

If J’s session is 3rd, then L’s session must be 1st, and from the third rule we can infer that M’s session is 2nd. H, and F :longline: GK remain to be placed. H cannot 4th due to the first rule, and so F must be on the 4th:

As G’s session can be on the 5th, answer choice (D) could be true and is correct.

I don't understand how D could be true, if rule number 1 requires H/M__ __ M/H. With the identified "correct" answer this rule would be broken by: M J F G K H. How could this be true?


Question #20: Local, Could Be True. The correct answer choice is (D)
If J’s session is 3rd, then L’s session must be 1st, and from the third rule we can infer that M’s session is 2nd. H, and F > GK remain to be placed. H cannot 4th due to the first rule, and so F must be on the 4th:
As G’s session can be on the 5th, answer choice (D) could be true and is correct.

Kind regards,

Thank you for your question, Elaine.

Regarding Q.20, it appears you have misread the rule regarding H and M. The rule stated that "at least two of the other nurses’ sessions must fall in between Heany’s session and Moreau’s session." Your question indicates you perceived the rule to mean there are exactly two other sessions in between. Please let me know if I have misunderstood your question.

Thanks,

Ron
