Kings and Queens (Posted on 2003-01-30) Difficulty: 3 of 5
From a standard pack of cards, I remove four cards, one of each suit, and one of each of he ranks Jack, Queen, King and Ace. I lay them out in a line face downwards. Now, you have been given the following facts:

(a) The Heart isnít next to the Club.

(b) No card is next to its immediate senior in rank.

(c) The colors of the suits alternate.

(d) The king and Queen are facing opposite directions.

Identify the four cards and their correct order.

In my standard deck the King of Spades and the Queens of Clubs and of Diamonds face to the viewer's right (his or her own left); the rest face the other way. The king of hearts and the queen of spades face the same direction. Plus the previous problem with your solution: the heart being next to the club. Pleasance's solution works, though the description of left and right there are from the viewer's point of view, not the king's or queen's as implied.
