What do we know about P and about team H?

P - N, so P is 1 or 2.

team G - team H, so team H is 2 or 3.

The only way they could be together is if P and team H are in spot 2.
?: [ __ , __] .... H: [ P , __ ] .... ?: [ __ , __ ]

We know that T is always in the 2nd team.
?: [ __ , __] .... H: [ P , T ] .... ?: [ __ , __ ]

We know that team G - team H, so G has to be the 1st team, and we know that S is always on team G.
G: [ S , __] .... H: [ P , T ] .... ?: [ __ , __ ]

We know that P - N, so N must be the 3rd team.
G: [ S , __ ] .... H: [ P , T ] .... F: [ N , __ ]

At this point, it wouldn't matter how we split up O and M.
G: [ S , M/O ] .... H: [ P , T ] .... F: [ N , O/M ]

Could be true questions test us on the flexible parts, and the only flexible characters are O and M, so we'd expect a correct answer about one of them.

(A) YES, this is possible
G: [ S , O ] .... H: [ P , T ] .... F: [ N , M ]

(B) Nope, P is on team 2.

(C) Nope, team 2 is comprised of P and T.

(D) Nope, team 2 is comprised of P and T.

(E) Nope, team 2 is comprised of P and T.
