On a train, Smithe, Robins, and John are the fireman, conductor, and the engineer, but NOT respectively. Also aboard the train are three businessmen who have the same names: a Mr. Smithe, a Mr. Robins, and a Mr. John.
Mr. Robins Lives in New York.
The conductor lives exactly halfway between Columbus and New York.
Mr. John earns exactly $20,000 per year.
The conductor's nearest neighbor, one of the passengers, earns exactly three times as much as the conductor.
Smithe beats the fireman in billiards. The passenger whose name is the same as the conductor's lives in Columbus.
Who is the Engineer?
(In reply to Solution
The question I read named 6 different passengers. So, how do you figure that Mr Smithe is the conductor's neighbor? If it wasn't Mr. Robins or Mr. John, it could've been any of the other 4. Unless you think that businessmen and blue-collar workers can't live in the same neighborhood?
