although the questions do not ask these scenarios, based on the 5,6,7 rule you could have

p,q,m, E, o,n,l to satisfy the 5,6,7 rule or;

E, p,q,m,o,n,l to satisfy the 5,6,7 rule or;


This the way I'm trying to make sense of this but thanks for your help and does the test structure the questions in a similar fashion so that I could probably say " I remember a similar question but just a different scenario and names?

Hey Art,

Those three orders are certainly possible. As long as you avoid the following Not Laws, and keep the P/G > M > O rule in mind, you're fine:

1: no M, no O
2: no M, no O
3: no N, no O
4: no O (would force P, Q, M into 1, 2, 3, meaning E goes to 5, 6, or 7 and violates a rule)
5: no N, no E
6: no P, no Q, no E
7: no N, no P, no Q, no M, no E (must be either O or L)

The LSAT could absolutely present a situation similar to this, as this sort of Sequencing/Linearity is a favorite concept of the test makers. So know it well!
