The correct answer choice is (D)
If John passes all of his courses, then he does not receive an E in any course, and his grade possibilities are only A, B, C, or D.
Because his geology grade is higher than language block (G IR or G RI), at a minimum the geology, Italian, and Russian grades must be three separate grades. This could be A-B-C, A-C-D, or B-C-D. However, since his geology grade is one grade higher than his physics grade, at a minimum the geology, physics, Italian, and Russian grades must be either A-B-C, B-C-D, or A-B-C-D:
In each instance, at least one B and one C must be assigned, and so answer choice (D) is correct.
