The correct answer choice is (B).
This is a partial List question, where only certain presentation positions are presented instead of the entire slate of presentations (as in question #6). The partial, almost random, nature of the list makes these questions somewhat harder than traditional full List questions. Nonetheless, the first step is to consider the rules. The second step is to examine the remaining answer choices and consider the variables in each that are yet to be placed and look for conflicts.
Answer choice (A) can be eliminated because from the first rule M can never be presented first.
Answer choice (C) can be eliminated because G is presented before J, but there is no room for L to be presented after G, a violation of the second rule.
Answer choice (D) can be eliminated because when P is presented fourth and L is presented fifth, the first rule is violated because there is no room for M to be presented ahead of L but after P.
Answer choice (E) can be eliminated because V is presented before G, but there is no room for P to be presented after V, a violation of the third rule.
Answer choice (C) is thus proven correct by process of elimination.
Overall, this question is the second hardest of the game, after question #9.
