Question two gives us a new rule: Lopez and Meng get different bonuses.
We already knew from the setup that Lopez and Meng have higher bonuses than Kimura and Peterson (rules 2 + 3). That’s because L and M are highly effective, and highly effective people get higher bonuses.
So to give L and M higher bonuses and also different bonuses, we need to give P and K $1,000. Then one of L/M will get $3,000 and the other will get $5,000.
The line above L and M shows that they are interchangeable.
This is a “could be true” question.
The above diagram shows that B is CORRECT: Lopez could receive a $3,000 bonus (or a $5,000 bonus).
All of the other answers are impossible.
