River Row (Posted on 2013-10-31) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Three men and two women crossed a river in a boat that held only two persons.
  1. No women was left alone with a man at any time, as required by the women.
  2. Only one person rowed during each crossing; no one rowed twice in succession, as required by the men.
  3. Of those who rowed while alone in the boat, Art was the first, Ben was the second and Cal was the third.
Assuming the minimum number of crossings, who was the last to row across the river?

There were some typos and the problem statement should read as:

Three men - Art, Ben and Cal and two women- Debbie and 
Emily crossed a river in a boat that held only two
persons.

1. Only one of the men rowed during each crossing; no
one rowed twice in succession.
2. None of the women rowed during any of the crossings.
3. Of those who rowed while alone in the boat, Art was
the first, Ben was the second and Cal was the third.

Assuming the minimum number of crossings, who was the
last to row across the river?
