Vera wants to go on a date and prefers her date to be tall, dark and handsome.
- Of the preferred traits - tall, dark and handsome - no two of Adam, Boyd, Cary and Dirk have the same number.
- Only one of Adam or Dirk is tall and fair.
- Only one of Boyd or Cary is short and handsome.
- Adam and Cary are either both tall or both short.
- Boyd and Dirk are either both dark or both fair.
Who is tall, dark and handsome?
(In reply to re: computer solution
Yes I had a typo in the program.
Adam is tall and handsome
Boyd is only handsome
Cary is Vera's pick
Dirk has nothing Vera wants.
The significant conclusion agrees with Ady's solution, though he has some wrong attributes among the auxilliary characters.
I should have checked my own computer answer as critically as I did Ady's.
