Arguably, the most important part of this whole game is recognizing that there are only two, very scarce, very important OUT spots, and one of them is always filled with V/U, because of rule 5.

With Q13, the other spot gets filled up with T.

__ __ __ __ __ | U/V, T

That means the other five dinos (one of whom is the other half of U/V) must be in.

I, P, S, L, V/U | U/V, T

If we add the colors we know for I, P, and S, we have

g y r
I, P, S, L, V/U | U/V, T

Since we need two mauve's IN, that means we have this

g y.. r..m..m
I, P, S, L, V/U | U/V, T

Since rule 6 says that if L and U are both in, they can't both be mauve, we know that it must be L and V, not L and U.

g y.. r..m m
I, P, S, L, V | U, T

Four of the answers match things we have in the IN column, but (D) does not, so (D) is correct.
