Ever since Emily began her new job, the last thing she wants to do when she gets home is clean her apartment. She decided to make a schedule so that she would clean a different room (including the living room) each day (Monday through Friday). Last week she procrastinated by talking on the phone, so this week, Emily decided to let the answering machine handle her calls, and she received a different number of messages each day. Can you determine the which rooms she cleaned each day and the number of messages she received?


Cleaning Days -- Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Number of Messages -- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Rooms Cleaned -- Bedroom, Living Room, Bathroom, Den, Kitchen


#1) Emily received more messages on Thursday than on the day she cleaned her bedroom, but fewer than on Tuesday.
#2) Emily cleaned the bathroom on the day after receiving just one message and one day before she cleaned the den.
#3) She received more messages when she cleaned her bedroom than when she cleaned the den.
#4) Emily cleaned the kitchen on Wednesday.
