This is an unusual question. You may have felt paralyzed at first. There seem to be many possibilities, it’s hard to figure out what must be true.
Here’s the trick. The question tells you that S must be in the same aisle as one other variable. So all you have to do is make a scenario that obeys the rules.
Whoever you place S with is the variable they must be beside, because any scenario would place S with that same variable.
This question has given you prior knowledge that S can only be with one person on this question. That’s rare on logic games.
Here’s the first scenario I tried. I put F second, and MP third (rule 2):
Then I put R with F (rule 1)
Then I put HS first (rules 3 and 4)
This diagram obeys every rule. B is CORRECT.
