From there, you might give some thought to who the more restricted variables are, and how those number impact those variables. For example, if G was to be used three times, one of those three times it would have to be paired with J, violating the last rule, so G cannot go three times. Same thing with J, for the same reason. So if we are in a 3-1-1-1 situation, that 3 must be either H or M. But maybe G or J could go twice?
In logic games, you should always think about the numbers. Always! They may have little impact, like in a game with 8 variables being divided into two groups of 4 with everyone used exactly once. But what if in that same situation, not everyone had to be used? Then you could have to think about the minimum number of variables required, and how many could be used twice, and how many you could leave out of the game, etc. Always be aware of numbers!
While templates are not always advisable, if you are stuck try doing the list question if there is one. If you are still stuck, try one or two hypothetical situations. What happens if G moves the sofa? What if J moves two pieces of furniture? Play around a bit to get a better sense of how the game works, and that may lead to some inferences and an overall easier time with the questions.
