Five delegates to an international conference, Alex, Boris, Chris, Daniel and Eva, among them spoke five languages. In fact one of them spoke only one of the languages; one spoke only two of them; another, only three; another spoke four of the languages and finally one spoke all five of the languages.

The following are true about which languages were spoken:

  1. Three of the delegates spoke Portuguese.
  2. Spanish was spoken by more of the delegates than any other language.
  3. When Chris and Eva conversed, it had to be in Italian--the only language that both spoke.
  4. The only common language among Alex, Boris and Eva was French.
  5. Boris and Chris both spoke English, but when Daniel joined them, they had to switch to Spanish, the only language common to all three.

What languages did each of the delegates speak?

True (albeit coded) facts: a year ago i've visited an Europian country named 2831561, to-morrow I'm boarding a flight to another country with a lesser population i.e. 1234561
The digits that could represent the Capital letters of the corresponding capitals of those countries were not mentioned above, but enough is said for you to find the cities and the countries.

The Queen spent 5803 francs more than her sister.
How old is the Queen?
