week 1: K L M
week 2: K L M N
week 3: M N
week 4: M N
week 5: N O P

because no philosopher is repeated, M and N must be discussed in week 3 and 4, so the set up is now
1: K/L
2: L/K
3: M/N
4: N/M
5: O/P

you should be able to answer the first 4 questions.

Then for 5, because S is added to 3, you can no longer presume that M and N is on 3 and 4. Only 1 of M,N is bound to the week 3/4. But since S is only on 3, week 4 has to remain M/N only (when week 3 is S). B is wrong because they say 3 is N and 2 is M. If S is not being used on 3 then M/N must be on 3/4 (as if the new rule is not in effect).

It is easy once you realize you can elimited the options per week because 3/4 must be M/N - so that M/N can't be used on other weeks.
