George, Helen, and Steve are drinking coffee.
Bert, Karen, and Dave are drinking soda.
Using logic, is Elizabeth drinking coffee or soda?
(In reply to re: Solution
What Chaz means is, within the boundaries of these seven people, two e's drink coffee. The only setback is, soda has an a, but only two of the soda drinkers have an a. This leaves Bert drinkless. You could try the o in soda, people who don't have o's, and that would make Bert, Karen, Dave, and Elizabeth soda drinkers, but that would also mean Helen and Steve also would. This destroys the confines of the problem. Only one solution remains, and that is that while if you have two e's, you drink coffee, but if you don't, then you drink soda. Not many names have two e's, so the coffee company must be losing money like heck.
