 BAD Ceed (Posted on 2019-02-27)
You are to place one each of A, B, C and D in each row of the below grid, leaving one cell blank. Do this in such a way that each column will also have one each of A, B, C and D and one blank.

Around the edges have been placed letters indicating the closest non-blank entry in that row or column. For example, the A to the right of row 2 indicates that the last non-blank in that row should be an A. The first non-blank in that row will be a D as indicated by the D to the left of that row.

```          A       D
++===+===+===+===+===++
||   |   |   |   |   ||
++---+---+---+---+---++
D ||   |   |   |   |   || A
++---+---+---+---+---++
||   |   |   |   |   || B
++---+---+---+---+---++
||   |   |   |   |   ||
++---+---+---+---+---++
B ||   |   |   |   |   || A
++===+===+===+===+===++
C
```
