- Andy, Belinda, Carl, and Debbie guess at four aces and a joker.
- Each card is correctly identified by at least one person.
- Nobody gets them all right or all wrong.
- No two people make the same number of correct guesses.
The guesses are as follows:
1st Card 2nd Card 3rd Card 4th Card 5th Card
Andy Club Joker Heart Diamond Club
Belinda Diamond Joker Heart Club Spade
Carl Heart Club Spade Diamond Joker
Debbie Diamond Joker Club Club Spade
What are the five cards?

By the way, it is interesting to me that the only thing needed to place the cards correctly (in this case) is knowing that the total number of correct guesses is 10.
The distribution of guesses by person (1,2,3,4) is not needed, just their total. Also not needed is the fact that each card was guessed correctly at least once.
