Five friends went shopping at different times, days, and at different places. Who went shopping at what place, and what time, and what day?
The boys are Darien and Dennis; the girls are Mina, Amy, and Serena.
1) Serena doesn't wake up until after noon, and she went somewhere to eat.
2) The toy shopper went on Saturday.
3) Mina went shopping on Monday
4) None of the girls shopped at the bike shop.
5) Dennis did not go out for food.
6) Amy went at 10 AM.
7) Dennis and the cafe shopper went on the weekend.
8) The person who went to the cafe, went after noon.
9) Friday was a busy morning at the grocery store for the girl who shopped there.
10) The person went to the bakery right when it opened, which was at 9:30 AM.
11) The toy shopper went shopping at noon.
12) Mina went earlier in the day than Amy, and Serena went earlier than Darien.
Answer1) Serena doesn't wake up until after noon (Which means she did not go out anytime before noon or at noon), and she went somewhere to eat (So she didn't go to the bike shop or the toy store.).
2) The toy shopper went on Saturday (And since we know that Serena isn't the toy shopper, she didn't go on Saturday.).
3) Mina went shopping on Monday (Which means she's not the toy shopper.).
4) None of the girls shopped at the bike shop (That leaves only the boys.).
7) Dennis and the cafe shopper went on the weekend (The cafe shopper went on Sunday, which means Dennis went on Saturday. The toy shopper went on Saturday, so the person is Dennis. This leaves Darien to be the only one to go to the bike shop.).
9) Friday was a busy morning at the grocery store for the girl who shopped there(Morning.).
11) The toy shopper went shopping at noon (Here, we find out that the grocery shopper went at 10 AM, which was Amy.).
12) Mina went earlier in the day than Amy (The only possible answer is 9:30 AM), and Serena went earlier than Darien (Serena went at 1:30 and Darien went at 3 PM. The cafe person went at 1:30-Serena, and she went on Sunday. Amy went to the grocery store, which leaves Mina at the bakery.).
