Complete Question Explanation
(The complete setup for this game can be found here: lsat/viewtopic.php?t=26553)

The correct answer choice is (D)

When H and Y are assigned to bench 1, the VFJ super block has only two options: benches 2 and 3 or benches 3 and 4. Since that much information could be tough to juggle in your mind, why not make two quick hypotheticals showing both possibilities?

In both possibilities the key to assigning the remaining variables is in the GW not-block. In possibility #1, when G is assigned to bench 4, W cannot be assigned to bench 4 and must instead be assigned to bench 3. In possibility #2, when G is assigned to bench 2, W cannot be assigned to bench 2 and must instead be assigned to bench 4. Possibility #1 proves that answer choice (D) is correct.
