Widow Surmise (Posted on 2013-12-12) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Four women -- April, Bella, Cara, and Denise -- and three men -- Edwin, Frank, and Gary -- play bridge, a card game for four players.
  1. The men and women consist of three married couples and a widow.
  2. The members of each married couple are never partners in a bridge game.
  3. No more than one married couple ever plays in the same bridge game.
One night they played four bridge games in which the partners were as follows:
   Partners	                  	   Partners
April and Edwin          versus          Bella and Frank
April and Gary           versus          Denise and Frank
Bella and Cara           versus          Frank and Gary
Cara and Edwin           versus          Denise and Gary
