Out of P, R and S only 1 can be in the team. If S is there, U and W will also be there. So, P and R should not be in the team for its size to be maximum.
Out of M and Q, only 1 can be there.
If L is there in the team, N and U cannot be in the team.
If L is not there in the team, then K is also not there in the team but N and U can be in the team.
So, the maximum team size is 5 consisting of S, U, W, (M or Q), N.

Out of P, R and S only 1 can be in the team. If S is there, U and W will also be there. So, P and R should not be in the team for its size to be maximum.
Out of M and Q, only 1 can be there.
If L is there in the team, N and U cannot be in the team.
If L is not there in the team, then K is also not there in the team but N and U can be in the team.
So, the maximum team size is 5 consisting of S, U, W, (M or Q), N.
So, M can be a member of team size 5.

If L is in the team, the team should include K also. The team should have one among P, R and S and one among M and Q.
So, the team size cannot be 3 if L is in the team.
