Who Stole the Birdseed? (Posted on 2004-10-21) Difficulty: 3 of 5
  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.

Hi lulu,

I am guessing by your profile that you are kind of new here.  As you spend more time on this site, you will see that we are a pretty open minded group.  We typically don't bash other people or their problems, no matter how lame they may seem.

Also, I'm sorry to tell you that you are actually wrong.  What if Hal were in Apt 1 and the guilty person were in Apt 4?  That does not violate the first clue because the guilty person is not ONE higher or ONE lower than Hal.

So this is another reason not to bash other people or their problems - if you turn out to be wrong you might feel silly afterwards.

I hope you find some problems you do enjoy.  Have fun!
