Six hot sauces – C D E F G and H – will be arranged from hottest to mildest in a straight line and numbered consecutively 1 (hottest) through 6 (mildest). The hot sauces are assigned one sauce per position, according to the following conditions:
1. F and G must be assigned to positions that are separated from each other by exactly one position
2. F and D cannot be assigned to positions that are next to each other
3. D is milder than E
4. C is placed in position 5

3. Which one of the following CANNOT be true?
A. D is assigned to position 3
B. F is assigned to position 4
C. E is assigned to position 6
D. D is assigned to position 2
E. E is assigned to position 4

Answer
CORRECT ANSWER: (C) – E is assigned to position 6
EXPLANATION: E cannot be assigned to position 6, because D has to come after it per rule #3, and if we put E in 6 there is no room for D.
