Q16

How can F be interviewed first? That would put G in second or 4th position while the rule says it can't be with I. Could you pls explain this problem?

If S is 4th, we know

__ __ __ __
..........r.....s


Those last two spots can't involve F, because F goes with q.
So those last two spots have to be G, H, I.
But they can't be G, I, because those two can't be next to each other.

So they have to be G/I and H.

From here, I wish I new whether H was gonna both 3 or 4 (r or s)

So I would frame those two options.

__ __ H __ ...... who's left: G/r, F/q, and I/s
...........r...s

or

__ __ __ H ...... who's left: G/s, F/q, and I/r
...........r...s

Placing the who's left into those two frames, we get

(G, F) H, I
(r...q)...r..s

and

G, F, I, H
s..q...r..s


Looking at answers
(A) possible in frame 1
F/q, G/r, H/r, I/s

(B) not possible in either frame
(C) not possible in either frame
(D) not possible in either frame
(E) not possible in either frame
