 Family Occupations (Posted on 2013-06-17)
One of the four people - Mr. Brown, his wife Monika, their son Mandy and their daughter Cindy - is a singer and another is a dancer.
1. If the singer and the dancer are the same sex, then the dancer is older than the singer.
2. If neither the singer nor the dancer is the parent of the other, then the singer is older than the dancer.
3. If the singer is a man, then the singer and the dancer are the same age.
4. If the singer and the dancer are of opposite sex then the man is older than the woman.
Whose occupation can you deduce with absolute certainty?
