Post A puzzle.

I recently found this puzzle, apparently devised by Einstein. He claims that 98% of the population are unable to solve it but I thought that figure seemed unlikely as it was so high. I posted it on another forum I go to but so far everybody has got it wrong. Can you guys do any better? And yes I did manage to solve it.


There are 5 houses, each is a different colour
In each house lives a person of a different nationality.
These 5 owners all drink a certain beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar and keep a certain pet.
No owner has the same pet, smokes the same brand of cigar or drinks the same drink as another owner.

1: The Briton lives in a red house.
2: The Swede keeps dogs as pets
3: The Dane drinks tea
4: The green house is on the left of the white house (they are also next door to each other)
5: The green house owner 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 house right in the center drinks milk
9: The Norwegian lives in the first house
10: The man who smokes Blend lives next to the one who keeps cats
11: The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill
12: The owner who smokes Blue Master drinks beer
13: The German smokes Prince
14: The Norwegian lives next to the blue house
15: The man who smokes Blend has a neighbor who drinks water.


The question is: WHO KEEPS FISH?

Well, the point was:
I don't like fish.
I am norwegian.

And yes, I know that there was a question about KEEPING fish, but so what?

Blackbird and JoJo junior are right. It is the German who keeps the fish.
