Puzzle 3

To answer this puzzle, you must first understand that there are five houses, each of which is painted in a different color.

Each home has a member of a different country. Each individual consumes a certain beverage, smokes a specific brand of cigarettes, and has a specific pet. However, no two people consume the same beverage, smoke the same brand of cigarettes, or own the same pet.

The issue is this:

• The red house is home to a British guy.
• A dog is the Swedish man’s pet.
• The man from Denmark is a tea drinker.
• To the left of the white home is the green house.
• The green house’s proprietor enjoys a cup of coffee.
• Pall Mall is smoked by someone who owns a bird.
• The yellow house’s owner is a Dunhill smoker.
• The resident in the middle home is a milk drinker.
• In the first house, the Norwegian resides.
• The individual who smokes Blend shares a house with the person who has a cat.
• The individual who owns a horse lives next door to the guy who smokes Dunhill cigarettes.
• Beer is consumed by the person who smokes Bluemaster.
• Prince is smoked by the German.
• A blue house is close to the Norwegian’s home.
• The person who smokes Blend has a water-drinking neighbor.

Tip: The key to figuring out the answer is to eliminate all alternatives one by one until you arrive at the final answer.

John has been imprisoned in a chamber. There’s a table, a chair, two doors, and a little (6-inch-diameter) hole in the ceiling. Behind the first door, there’s a ravenous lion that hasn’t eaten in several days. A glass tunnel behind the second door amplifies the sunlight, creating such a high temperature that merely opening the door might kill John. How is he going to get away?

Here’s the problem:

The solutions

1. The prisoner was hiding in house A since it was the only house with a car turned toward the street, allowing him to go quickly.
2. Explanation for Shape 1: At first, you might think you’re the only one who’s green. What about the lonely circle, though? Or maybe just a single tiny square? Or the only shape that doesn’t have a border? During the elimination process, you’ll notice that the shape on the left is the odd one out, because it’s the only one that isn’t an odd one out! The form on the left is unique because it isn’t unique. Congratulations to those who figured it out! Make the most of your sharp vision and exceptional reasoning ability.
