School Shelves (Posted on 2003-09-06) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Frances Farrell loves children. Having chosen to stay at home during her child's early years, she enthusiastically opened a small nursery school to care for her own child and five other preschoolers. In the entry-way stand a bookcase with six numbered compartments (numbered top to bottom, then left to right), each assigned to a different child for his or her possesions, including a favorite toy.

From the information given, determine each child's full name (one girl's first name is Janet), shelf assignment, and favorite toy (one is a puzzle).
  1. Kevin and the Baker child, who are the two tallest children, are assigned the two top shelves, while the Lorenz child, who is the third tallest, has a shelf with a higher number than Mark's.

  2. Holly has a higher shelf than the Collins child, who has a shelf located immediately to the right of the one containing a picture book.

  3. The shelf belonging to the Forbes child and the one which holds a box of crayons are both even-numbered shelves.

  4. Darren's toy and the set of blocks sit side-by-side on shelves that are above the fire engine.

  5. The teddy bear is on the shelf directly below Monica's and directly above the McKenna child's.
