††Bonnie bought a bag of birdseed. She left it in her apartment (#5) before she went to work, intending to fill the feeder that afternoon. But when she got back, the bag of birdseed was gone!
††There were four other people living in the same apartment building as her, all of whom were avid birdwatchers like Bonnie. One of them must have done it. Look at the clues below. If you know everybody's name, apartment number (#1 through #4), and favourite bird, you will know who is guilty.
1. The guilty person's apartment number is not numbered one higher or one lower than Hal's.
2. Joe's favourite bird is the crow; his apartment number is one lower than that of Ike (who doesn't like robins).
3. The guilty person's apartment is not #3 (the number of the finch-lover's).
4. Gil is neither at apartment #1 nor the wren-lover.
IF Hal is in apt #1, then Joe HAS to be in apt #2, and Ike HAS to be in apt #3. This leaves Gil in apt #4 (legal). Ike has to like finches since heís in apt #3 (legal). Since only the wren and robin are left, and since Gil doesnít like wrens, this means Gil has the robin. This leaves Hal with the wren (legal). In this case, the guilty party cannot be in apt #2 because that is 1 higher than Hal. So the guilty party is in apt #4 (since heís not in apt #3). Thatís GIL (as in Gil-ty)
this was posted by someone.. and it is right..If you know everybody's name, apartment number (#1 through #4), and favourite bird, you will know who is guilty. think about it.. Gil-ty (name) 4 (apartment) Robin (bird) :Guilty for robbing
