The correct answer choice is (A)
This is a tricky question, and probably the hardest question of the game. The question is very difficult if you do not infer that S and M must play the same sport.
Because M and S must play the same sport, when S plays tennis, M must also play tennis. When M plays tennis, the fifth rule is enacted, and that rule indicates that when M plays tennis, S always ranks higher than M. Thus, because M and S would always play tennis together, S could never be the lowest-ranking tennis player, and answer choice (A) is correct.
Note that O (as referenced in answer choice (C)), could be the lowest-ranking tennis player if S and M (and therefore P) play golf.
