 08-16-2001, 07:41 PM #1 HelenW @HelenW   Join Date: Feb 2001 Location: England Posts: 329 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? you may: quote & reply,
