Test: LSAT Logic Games

A library is holding a special five-day event honoring successful local writers. One writer will be invited to be a guest speaker for each night from Monday through Friday, and no writer will be asked to participate twice.  The writers have each written books in only one of four different genres—science fiction, mystery, historical fiction, and non-fiction.  A, J, and X are all science fiction writers.  B and Y are both mystery writers.  C and Z are both historical fiction writers.  L is a non-fiction writer.  The following conditions apply without exception:

At least one writer from each genre will be invited to speak on at least one night.

No two authors from the same genre will be invited to speak on the following night.

If C is invited to speak, then X is invited to speak on the following night.

If Y is invited to speak, then neither C nor A are invited to speak.

If X and J are both invited to speak, then neither will speak on either the first or last night.

If L and B are both invited to speak, then neither will speak on either the first or last night.
