There are a number of NPCs on podiums north of the island that provides you suggestions about which gravestones to choose depending on their conversation. For example, if the first NPC says as a winner I left em looking foolish means in the first row the left-most grave must be interacted with.

If the third says I can go up from here it means top grave in the center column.

Because the conversation you hear from the NPCs will vary from session to session, you must pay attention to what they have to say. In order to complete the problem, you’ll need to follow their guidelines. Taking notes on the discussion can help you choose the proper tombstones on your first attempt if you’re just getting started with the task.
