 Game Show (Posted on 2005-05-01)
On a certain game show, five families were asked to match famous names to faces they were shown, and each correct guess got one point. The families made the following guesses (in order):

The Addams' guessed Otto, Roebling, Steinmetz, Tesla, and Westinghouse.
The Bunkers guessed Tesla, Westinghouse, Otto, Steinmetz, and Roebling.
The Cunninghams guessed Roebling, Tesla, Steinmetz, Westinghouse, and Otto.
The Flintstones guessed Tesla, Roebling, Otto, Steinmetz, and Westinghouse.
The Jetsons guessed Tesla, Westinghouse, Steinmetz, Otto, and Roebling.

No two families got the same number of points. Which family walked home with the grand prize?

I think Flintstones got the prize with full puntage.

If I don't misundertood the problem you can solve it just supposing that each family win and checking scores of each other family. Yet, you can also reasoning on the basis of the different scores, wich means that the winner and the second have at least three common results, and so on...
