always address the 5's clues first
When starting a puzzle, seek out the '4'or '5 persons are' clues and check the boxes indicated first, before the board gets cluttered with other stuff.
Despite the list of ten items shown above for a '5 persons' clue , you will only check nine boxes because two items will fall in the same category, and they are exclusive by ddefault
'4 persons' clues will allow you to check 6 boxes, which matches the number of combinations indicated on an A thru D list. This is because the clues typically include only one item or person from each catwgory.
