    The Einstein Quiz

    Albert Einstein said that 98% of the people in the world can not solve the following puzzle. I have no idea if that’s true, but I’m willing to give Einstein the benefit of the doubt. :P

    I think this puzzle is tough, but fair. It was slow going at first, but once the pieces started fitting it went quickly. I needed 40-45 minutes to solve it.

    So without further ado, on to the question.

    The Einstein Quiz: Who has the fish?

    1. There are 5 houses in 5 different colors.
    2. In each house lives a person with a different nationality.
    3. These 5 owners drink a certain beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar and keep a certain pet.
    4. No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar or drink the same drink.

    1. The Brit 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.
    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 centre 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.

    Problem: Specify who lives in each house, what animals they own, what they drink and what they smoke, and then, by this process, determine who has the fish.

    If anyone's interested, I'll post the answer later. Have fun! :P
    Why is everyone who drives slower than me an idiot, and everyone who drives faster a maniac?
