Einstein’s Puzzle


Sorry about the miserable level of posting from yours truly.  But, I’ll try to make up for this dearth of content; I’m almost done with chapter 3 of our QM study.

But, today I go off on another tack. Yes, here it is,  Einstein’s Puzzle; first the clues:

1. The Englishman lives in the red house;

2. The Swede keeps dogs;

3. The Dane drinks tea;

4. The  green house is just to the left of the white one;

5. The owner of the green house drinks coffee;

6. The Pall Mall smoker keeps birds;

7. The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhills;

8. The man in the center house drinks milk;

9. The Norwegian lives in the first house on the left;

10. The Blend smoker has a neighbor who keeps cats;

11. The man who smokes Blue Masters drinks beer;

12. The man who keeps horses lives next to the  Dunhill smoker;

13. The German smokes Prince;

14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house;  and

15. The Blend smoker has a neighbbor who drinks water.

OK. Five houses all different, and five different nationalities.

Every man has his favorite drink, his favorite brand of smokes, and keeps pets of a particular kind (none the same).

Obviously, your task is to match up each man with his own house, drink, etc.



Oh, and BTW, I wouldn’t spend more than a couple of hours on this.

    We are having difficulty finding the 5th pet. Before we beat our heads too hard, we are wondering if Line 15 should have more information…should there be something after the “and”???? Or is the “and” just a penultimate sentence thing?????????????????????
