Complete Question Explanation
(The complete setup for this game can be found here: lsat/viewtopic.php?t=11436)

The correct answer choice is (E)

The initial rules indicate that L can never be tested last. From our discussion of F in the setup explanation, we were also able to deduce that K cannot be last. Ultimately, K and L are the only two variables that cannot be tested last, and therefore F, G, H, I, and M can all be tested last. Answer choice (E) is thus correct.

Isn't this response incorrect, as the only cold medications that could exist when M is chosen is M, F, H, I, and L? L ranks second, so it can't be excluded.

Hi Cochran! Thanks for your question

You're correct that when M is chosen, the five chosen medications must be M, F, H, I, and L.

However, this question asks us for a complete list of which variables can be ranked fifth. Since L can never be fifth (the rules state it can only be ranked second), any answer choice that lists L is incorrect. Since answer choice (E) does not list L, it is not incorrect.

I hope this helps, and let me know if you have any further questions!
