For acceptable order questions, go through the rules and use them to eliminate answers one by one.
Note that I use the rules themselves. I don’t use my diagrams for these questions. Reading the rules again for this question will help you memorize the rules, and it’s also more efficient.
Rule 1 eliminates A. Oil and watercolors are supposed to be before lithographs.
Rule 2 eliminates D. Farley is supposed to lecture before oil paintings.
Rule 3 eliminates C. Holden is supposed to be before Garcia.
Rule 4 eliminates B. Holden is supposed to be before Jiang.
E is CORRECT. It violates no rules.
