(The complete setup for this game can be found here: lsat/viewtopic.php?t=11436)
The correct answer choice is (B)
The condition in the question stem leads to the following two basic scenarios, based on whether F or G is first:
In scenario #1, K cannot be selected because F is first (this inference was discussed in the game setup: when K is selected, G must be first). Thus, only G, H, and M remain to fill the final two spaces. If both G and H are selected, then H must rank better than G. If M is selected, then H must be selected.
In scenario #2, neither H nor M can be selected: M cannot be selected with G, and H cannot be selected when G is first (when H is selected, F must be first). Thus, only K and F remain to fill the final two spaces. And because of the fifth rule, K must rank ahead of F.
The information above yields the following completed scenarios:
Consequently, answer choice (B) is correct.
