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 them, and it’s also more efficient.
Rule 1 eliminates A. The hickory and the oak must go together with one other tree. In A they are alone.
Rule 2 eliminates no answers.
Rule 3 eliminates C. Lot one needs the larch or the walnut. Instead it has only the maple.
Rule 4 eliminates E. Lot two needs either the walnut or the larch. In E it has only the plum and the sycamore.
Rule 5 eliminates B. Lot three is supposed to have more trees than lot one.
D is CORRECT. It violates no rules.
