Jessica is taking Evidential Reasoning as part of her criminology degree. Each week the homework includes one or more puzzle/mind game/whatever you want to call them. She's given me one of the old ones to see who can solve it. So here it is:
friends went rafting on a nearby river using four 2-person rafts. One was
yellow, one was green, one was red, and one was blue. Match the last names (of
Cook, Gladstone, Hawley, Hughes, O'Brien, Sands, Smith, and Wilson) with the first
names (of Alan, Don, Frank, Henry, Leroy, Paul, Phil and Walt) and the color
raft each used based on the statements below.
the following statements is false:
1.Phil and Cook rode the
river together without incident, but did not finish first.
2.The red raft capsized
and did not finish, while the green raft finished first.
3.O'Brien and Leroy were
not in the same raft.
4.Paul and Wilson finished
last on their raft.
5.Henry is a good swimmer and
helped his partner Hughes, not Walt, get to shore. They recovered their
capsized raft but decided not to finish the run.
6.Frank and Hawley picked
the yellow raft, and finished the run in second.
7.Alan and Hughes were on
the same raft and were the first to finish the run.
8.Leroy and Smith
completed the run and did not come in last.
9.Don and Gladstone vowed
never to set foot in a raft after they capsized.
10.Alan did not care that his team finished last.
