 Who Stole the Birdseed? (Posted on 2004-10-21)
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.

Whodunit?

 My answer...check it plz! | Comment 85 of 133 |
Hal - Wren - 1 (guilty)
Joe - Crow - 2
Ike - Finch - 3
Gil - Robin - 4

Notice that the guilty person (Hal) isn't in an apt. 1 above or 1 below Hal's, because he is Hal.

I checked the possibilities, but think it's right.

Thanx,
Bruno.
