It’s not that the other rules aren’t important; I just think (although this is a judgment call, and Danny and/or Mike may disagree) that they’re not as important in this case as a rule that gives us certainty.

Here’s what I mean:

What do we know if H is in a car? Well, nothing really, for sure. F might be driving the car, but F might also not even be in the same car. Maybe G is driving the car. Maybe F and G are both in the car.

But what do we know if G is in a car? L is also in the same car. Period, 100%. So to me, that makes it “more important.” It immediately provides me with some 100% information; on this question, it allows me to right away place both G and L on every answer choice.

Again, this is more of an opinion/judgment call sort of thing. What’s great about a forum like this is that you can get multiple qualified opinions that might disagree, and you get a chance to evaluate them all and see what makes sense or works for you.
