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.
ok ok so hear me out....number1 is joe who loves crows, number 2 is ike who loves wrens, numbah 3 is gil who loves finches, and number 4 is hal who loves robins
the last sentence sez that gil is neither at apartment #1 nor the wren lover. so if hes not there, couldnt he be like stealing the birdseed? sorry but it seemed perfectly logical to me. but i figured it was a typo and my REAL answer is Hal...Hal is the robber....hey it said he loves "robin"
