There are three playing cards face-up on the table.
A diamond is on the left of a spade.
An eight is on the right of a king.
A ten is on the left of heart.
A heart is on the left of a spade.
From left to right, what are the three playing cards?
There are three cards that include diamond, spade and heart, so each is represented once. The diamond and the heart are each to the left of the spade, but the heart is to the right of the 10, so itís not on the extreme left, so the order is diamond, heart, spade. The 10 is to the left of the heart, and so it is the diamond at the extreme left. That leaves the king and the 8, which have been specified to be in that order.
That makes it the 10 of diamonds, king of hearts and 8 of spades.
