Five of your relatives are having a Sunday Football party. You have to decide which one you are going to by solving the problem of how they are related to you, what snacks they are serving, and what team they are cheering for.
Their names are Pat, Chris, PJ, Stacey, and Bobbi. They are your Cousin, Uncle, Mother, Brother, or Sister. They serve Popcorn, Chips, Carrot Sticks, Pizza, or Cookies. They cheer for the Broncos, Raiders, Packers, Cowboys, or Dolphins.
Neither Chris nor Stacey serves chips (which are served while watching the Broncos).
The cookies are not served while watching the Packers or Raiders. Pat isn’t your brother (your brother doesn’t serve cookies or pizza.)
PJ is your cousin (and doesn’t serve cookies or carrot sticks) who watches the Dolphins.
Your sister doesn’t watch the Broncos or the Packers; and the Packers fan doesn’t serve carrot sticks. Chris is not your brother.
When you go to Bobbi’s house, pizza is served, but Bobbi is not your uncle.
Here is my solution:(I came up with it in a process of elimination.It took me a while.I typed it in a word document and pasted it in my paint program and eliminated each to match the statement.Kind of like a "Clue" game.)
Pat is my uncle who serves chips and cheers for the Broncos.
Chris is my mother who serves cookies and cheers for the Packers.
PJ is my cousin who serves popcorn and cheers for the Dolphins.
Staces is my brother who serves carrots and cheers for the Cowboys.
Bobbi is my sister who serves pizza and cheers for the Raiders.
I'm pretty sure it's right, but if it's not, then at least I put forth a LOT of effort.
