Solution re(2): computer solution Comment 10 of 10 |
(In reply to re: computer solution by snark)

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.
