This question places the Sisley in the seventh position. Whenever a question gives you a new rule, you can make an additional deduction.
Ask yourself which rules affect the Sisley. Rule 3 does: the Pissarro must be beside the Sisley. So the Pissarro must be in sixth on this question.
The Vuillard is the next variable I placed, since it can go third or fourth. I first tried putting the Vuillard third:
We needs three spaces for the Renoir and the Morisot, so they can only fit around the Vuillard:
In this diagram, the Turner could only go first, since the Turner has to go before the Whistler (rule 1). This doesn’t help us, since “first” is not one of the answers.
So instead we can try putting Vuillard fourth:
R_M are the next hardest to place. They can only go first and third, or third and fifth (around the Vuillard).
It doesn’t make sense to put them around the Vuillard, because then only spaces 1 and 2 would be open for the Turner and the Whistler. We already know the Turner can be in first place, and that’s not the answer.
So let’s place R_M first and third:
Here we can see that the Turner and the Whistler can go second and fifth:
So A is CORRECT. The Turner can go second.
