Einstein's Riddle

Post by krisakiko on Sat Dec 15, 2007 12:12 am

The story behind Einstein's riddle is that
Albert Einstein created it in the late 1800s, and claimed that 98% of
the world population couldn't solve it. I am not sure of the true
origin, but I have seen this one floating around the internet, and it
is a good brain exercise. Here it is:

- In a street there are five houses, painted five different colors.

- In each house lives a person of different nationality

- These five homeowners each drink a different kind of beverage, smoke different brand of cigar and keep a different pet.

Einstein's riddle is: Who owns the fish?

Necessary clues:

1. The British man lives in a red house.
2. The Swedish man keeps dogs as pets.
3. The Danish man drinks tea.
4. The Green house is next to, and on the left of the White house.
5. The owner of the Green house drinks coffee.
6. The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
7. The owner of the Yellow house smokes Dunhill.
8. The man living in the center house drinks milk.
9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
10. The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
11. The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
12. The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.
13. The German smokes Prince.
14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
15. The Blends smoker lives next to the one who drinks water.

See if you can solve the problem.

Like van21691 said, make a 2D table of each category against every other category, and then use logic to eliminate relationships. Pag sinipag ako maybe I can show how to do the first few steps. Razz

Tama si van, dapat ka maggawa ng table n2. Its Einstein's riddle of course, its not that easily done.
