This question says that Tipton evaluates two candidates. And Rule five says that Smith must evaluate more candidates than Tipton does. So if Tipton evaluates two candidates, Smith must evaluate three candidates. That leaves one candidate for R and U:
Next, look to the rules and see what applies. Kent must be alone in a group. That means Kent must be evaluated by Rao:
Just like on question 7, you must now see who’s left to place. There’s FL, and I, H and M. I, H and M can’t go together. That means FL must be evaluated by Smith. This lets us separate I and HM.
I, H and M are left. Inman has to go with FL, because if Inman were evaluated by Tipton then either H or M would also be there. Next, since only Tipton has space left, both Hong and Madsen must go there:
C is CORRECT. Farrell can’t be evaluated by Tipton. All of the other answers have to be true.
This may seem like a lengthy process, but on the page it should take about 15 seconds. It takes a long time for me to write and for you to read because I’m going one step at a time, and I have to make sure what I’m doing is clear. But with practice, you can learn to see these steps intuitively in your head and do them quickly.
