Since we’re placing variables in sales, we should figure out which rules apply to sales.
That’s the only rule specific to sales. Start with answer choices that involve X being in sales.
B is CORRECT. This isn’t possible. If X and G are in sales then H and Y are forced to go in P along with F. That fills up P. But X being in S means that W also has to go in P. There’s no room!
E involves X, but the scenario works and so the answer isn’t right. H, Y and X are all in S. W has to go in P along with F. G must go in M to avoid F. That leaves I able to go in P, which works.
A is fine. H and Y go in P. W goes in S and X goes in M (X has to go in M so that he doesn’t force W into P.)
C is fine because it means H, Y and G are all in S. That allows us to put X, W and I in either P and M. No rules apply to them when they’re in P or M.
D is fine because it means H, Y and W are in S. That leaves G to go in M (so it avoids F). X and I can go in P, as there are no rules that apply to them when they are in P.
