Two Nichols For Your Thoughts 

Logic Problem - 5 Cents
Posted by: Mark Nichols

15 Sep 2007

Here's a logic problem to get that ol' brain a workin'. Hadn't done one of these since about 7th grade before I did this one last week.



Five houses of different color are in a row.


Different nationality, hobby, pet, and drink.


1. The Englishman lives in the red house.

2. The Spaniard owns dogs.

3. Coffee is drunk in the green house.

4. The Ukrainian drinks tea.

5. The green house is directly to the right of the white one.

6. The stamp collector owns snails.

7. The antiques collector lives in the yellow house.

8. The man in the middle house drinks milk.

9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.

10. The man who sings lives next to the man with the fox.

11. The man who gardens drinks juice.

12. The antiques collector lives next to the man with the horse.

13. The Japanese man's hobby is cooking.

14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.



I'll post the answer in a couple days or so. I'd post it below right now... but I don't trust you.

The man in the second story apartment just got done drinking scotch, smoking a cigar, and eating an apple.

Is the answer you're looking for supposed to be that they all live in the Itaewon district of Seoul?

Missing a drink
I only count four drinks given in the hints. But I'll attempt anyway, making up my own drink for the fifth.

I'm gonna blame Microsoft (unfairly)
Oops. I forgot to post the last 2 questions which make the puzzle complete.

Who owns the zebra?
Who drinks soda?

Something like that.

And Paul Best got it right, too... as did Steve, I'm assuming. I'm not gonna check, since that'd take work.

Steve, there should be AT LEAST two fifths. (Not counting the fifth dog... unless it's a scotch terrier. Nah, still don't count it.)
