This question uses a step by step pattern of deductions to determine almost everything. I’ll show you the eight steps. This is how the LSAT wants you to think.
Step 1: The question says P is alone. So draw that:
Step 2: Check rules. Notice rule 2 means O is out, since P is alone.
Step 3: Notice that since one variable is out, the others are all in. (Because 5/6 colors are in)
Step 4: Notice this means white is in. Draw it:
Step 5: List the remaining variables: F, T, Y
Step 6: Notice that the exclusion rules mean that F and T don’t go together.
Step 7: Notice that there are only two groups left. See that this means that F and T are in separate groups:
Step 8: Notice that only one space is left for yellow:
These steps take a lot of text to describe. But if you know the rules, you can move through them in 10-15 seconds. Practice by redoing this game and seeing how fast you can do this question by following the steps.
E is CORRECT. White and yellow must go together in a rug.
