Who Owns the Zebra?

Recommended Posts

This is a question from my math book... based on the popular puzzle Who Owns the Zebra.

1. There are five houses in a row, each of a different color and inhabited by people of different nationalities, with different pets, drinks, and flowers.

2. The English person lives in the red house.

3. The Spaniard owns the dog.

4. Coffee is drunk in the green house.

5. The Ukrainian drinks tea.

6. The green house is immediately to the right (your right) of the ivory house.

7. The geranium grower owns snails.

8. Roses are in front of the yellow house.

9. Milk is drunk in the middle house.

10. The Norwegian lives in the first house on the left.

11. The person who grows marigolds lives in the house next to the person with the fox.

12. Roses are grown at the house next to the house where the horse is kept.

13. The person who grows lilies drinks orange juice.

14. The Japanese person grows gardenias.

15. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.

So given the 15 clues, who drinks water? And who owns the zebra?

It took me about an hour to solve it.  (yes, it is possible.  lol)

I'll even attach the Excel file that I made to help solve it ;)

you did get it... well unless I was wrong too :-/

I held off on looking at his attachment because I thought it would give away the answer, now I look at the attachment and notice that it was just an aid.. lol  -- that's all good, I'd rather write it on regular paper with problems like that paper is easier for me.
