Are you in the top 2% of intelligent people in the world ?
Solve the Riddle and find out.

There are no tricks, just pure logic, so good luck and don't give up.

1. In a street there are five houses, painted five different colors.
2. In each house lives a person of different nationality
3. These five homeowners each drink a different kind of beverage,
smoke different brand of cigar and keep a different pet.

THE QUESTION: WHO OWNS THE FISH?

HINTS

1. The Brit lives in a red house.
2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
3. The Dane drinks tea.
4. The Green house is next to, and on the left of the White house.
5. The owner of the Green house drinks coffee.
6. The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
7. The owner of the Yellow house smokes Dunhill.
8. The man living in the center house drinks milk.
9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
10. The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
11. The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
12. The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.
13. The German smokes Prince.
14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
15. The man who smokes Blends has a neighbor who drinks water.

Albert Einstein wrote this riddle early during the 19th century.
He said that 98% of the world population would not be able to solve it.

It's the German living in the Green house who drinks coffee and smokes Prince.

(Excel spreadsheet helps)

Oh. It's also the fourth house on the block.

I wonder if Albert had intended to test the intelligence of the world with or without the use of the Internet or MicroSoft Office?

In other words..........are you part of the 2% who did NOT use the wonderful world of modern technology to get the answere?

Ooorrrr.........

Are you of a different 2% that has a computer with Office or Internet and know how to use them?

Not to be rude or pick on anybody. It was just a thought. I personally like the challenge of not using "modern tools" all the time to get an answere........a little sweeter satisfaction if you will.

Something is wrong

This puzzle is all messed up because we have a German that doesn't drink beer and a Brit that doesn't drink tea...and a Dane living next to a Norwegian...

I also wondered if using a spreadsheet would be considered cheating, but all I used it for was to create the matrix. (rows & colums) The spreadseet did not perform any calculations.

I could have used a "quill" and "parchment" to do the exact same thing.

But on the other hand, Googling the answer, in my opinion was cheating since Google wasn't around when the puzzle was created.

These are great, you can buy puzzle books full of them, known as "logic problems" I used to do lots of them as a kid
