 Pretty Picture (Posted on 2006-09-27)
Photos of seven people have been cut into five pieces ( head, legs, body, arms & feet ) and reassembled' so that each 'new' photo contains part of five different people. From the information given below infer the combination of each new photo.

1) Joseph's arms aren't with the body of the person whose arms are in the same picture as Gordon's feet.
2) Gordon's arms are in the same picture as Joseph's feet.
3) Danny's arms are in the same photo as Joseph's legs, but not Polly's head.
4) Polly's legs are attached to the feet of the person whose head tops the body of the person whose legs are in the same picture as Sheila's head.
5) Sheila's body now has the arms of someone whose legs are not attached to Danny's feet.
6) Polly's arms are in the same picture as Gordon's head.
7) Sheila's head is in the same photo as the feet of the person whose head is in the same photo as Gordon's legs.
8) Moira's head now tops Joseph's body.
9) Elaine's head is in the same photo as Sheila's legs, which now ends with the feet of the person whose legs are in the same picture as Joseph's arms.
10) Elaine's arms are in the same picture as the legs of the person whose feet are in the same photo as Gordon's body.
11) Sheila's body doesn't have the legs of the person whose body has Gordon's head.

 great puzzle, some clues are redudant | Comment 6 of 10 |
Great puzzle, Salil.

I've managed to solve this by building the usual grid for solving logic problems of this kind with the additional help of a set of figures with the heads, arms, etc. I've forgotten to take the papers with me today, but I guess the solution should be the same as the previously posted one. Further, I found that clue 4 (the most complicated one), along with clues 1, 5 and 11 (the negative clues, thus more complicated) are in fact redundant...
