### PT 56 S1 G4, totally lost!

I need help with this game. Can someone walk me through the whole game and the questions?

I do not see why Q must come before both R and T. Couldn't Q just simply be before one of them? The "or" in the rule made me think that it could mean R and T, but doesn't have to be the case.

I still for the life of me can't do questions 19 through 23.

For #19, I have

I don't have time to help out with the whole game, but I think that rule is pretty clearly Q-T & Q-R, because it uses the word ANY. If there is any site that includes R, or any site that includes T, then Q must go before it. In this game, there are site visits for T & R, so Q must go before each.
Maybe you are struggling on the entire game because of that one rule.
Hope that helps.

q must come before anything with EITHER r or t.

If it was just one of them, it would say so, like " q must come before r, or otherwise before t"

as for 19. It is a pretty simple MBT.

Your diagram only has two slots, there are 3 days for visits. Is that where you went wrong?

On the LSAT "either/or" means at least one, possibly both. But in this case the wording "before any site visit" seals the deal that the rule reads: Q----R and Q----T.
With this rule in mind the game should make a lot more sense to you.
