Which Game? (Posted on 2002-12-31) Difficulty: 3 of 5
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.

The PJ is your cousin who watches the Dolphins who didn’t serve cookies or carrot sticks (clue 3), or chips (Broncos, clue 1) or pizza (Bobbi, 5), so popcorn. The cookies weren’t served while watching the Packers or Raiders (2) so Cowboys. The carrot sticks (4) weren’t served during the Packers, so Raiders, thus the Packers fan serves pizza. Pat serves chips (1). Your brother (2) serves carrot sticks (4) as is named Stacey. Chris serves cookies. Your sister (4) serves cookies. Your uncle wasn't (5) serving pizza; he served chips. Your mother served pizza.
    Thus: Pat – Uncle – Chips - Broncos
    Chris – Sister – Cookies - Cowboys
    PJ – Cousin – Popcorn - Dolphins
    Stacey – Brother – Carrot Sticks - Raiders
    Bobbi – Mother – Pizza – Packers
This is an original problem.
