So is the reason you're starting from category A is because there are more data point in that category? so lets say if it was flipped and majority was on the other side at H, would you start there?

Yep, that's right! If there were many more values on the other side, it'd be better to start there. Ultimately, it doesn't matter where you start, but it is easier if you start with the side that has more data points.
