 Who owns the fish? (Posted on 2002-05-08)
On a street are five houses, side by side, painted five different colours. In each house lives a person of different nationality. The five residents each drink a different beverage. The five residents each smoke a different brand of smokes. The five residents each have a different kind of pet.

Hints:

1. The Brit lives in the red house
2. The Swede has a dog
3. The Dane drinks tea
4. The green house is attached to the left side of the white house (directional hints are as you look from the front)
5. The owner of the green house drinks coffee
6. The person who smokes Pall Mall has birds
7. The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill
8. The man living in the center house drinks milk
9. The Norwegian lives in the first house
10. The man who smokes Blends lives next door to the man who has cats
11. The man with horses lives next door to the man who smokes Dunhill
12. The man who smokes Players drinks beer
13. The German smokes Rothmans
14. The Norwegian lives next door to the blue house
15. The man who smokes Blends has a water drinker next door

Solving the same using the grid is not difficult. The solution using the grid in the order of House number, colour, Native, Beverage, smoke Brand & pet is as follows

First, Yellow, Norwegian, Water, Dunhill, Cats

Second, Blue, Dane, Tea, Blends, Horses

Third, Red, Brit, Milk, PallMall, Birds,

Fourth, Green, German, Coffee, Rothmans, Fish

Fifth, White, Swede, Beer, Players, Dog

Sorry Grid is not getting attached
