Thank you very much for your prompt response.
Based on all my diagramming and re- doing the questions, I would rank the conditions in the following order:
1st Condition: After having overread the condition and reading too much into it, I understand why its so simple. (I get a bit confused because i thought that if R is 2nd or 3rd, then K could be anywhere according to the rules and vice versa). Am I understanding your explanation correctly? I would rank this as the 45h most important rule.
2nd Condition- 2nd most important rule- because it restricts movement of "H" in the remaineder of the game.
3rd and 4th condition- 3rd most important rule- J virtually controls the game and the placement of the other variables, but it does not provide any certainty as to where they could be placed.
5th condition- most important rule- restricts what can go into the 5th spot.
I think the reason I had so much trouble with this question is because I was trying to combine the conditions and solidify the variables that had only a few spots to go into. If you could provide a diagram of some sort of how I should work through this problem, I would really appreciate it.
I feel like all the variables were moving throughout the game and there weren't enough variables with restrictions on their movement to make correct decisions.
If you could help me out, I would really appreciate it.
I also thought that the 1st condition meant that if R is 2nd or 3rd then K could go anywhere. I read Dave's responses, but I'm still not clear on why K is bound to 2/3 when there is an either/or option - K/R. Please advise, thank you!
