Trilogy Part 1: Howdy, PardnerLogic Grid puzzles come with a handy interactive grid that will help you solve the puzzle based on the given clues.
Standing outside of Sneed's Seed and Feed are five local ranch owners (including Mr. Lovelace), talking about the weather and current events. From the information provided, can you determine the first and last names of the rancher and the position they are standing?
"Left" and "Right" refer to your left and right. Draw 5 lines on a sheet of paper and label them A through E, in order - with position A being on the left looking at the paper and position E being on the right looking at the paper.
First Names - Carl, Hank, Pablo, Rusty and Zeke
Last Names - Brooks, Ewing, Lovelace, McCool and Sanchez
Positions - A, B, C, D and E
1. Rusty is somewhere to the left of Mr. Brooks.
2. Zeke isn't Mr. Ewing (who is the rancher in position C).
3. Carl (who isn't Mr. McCool) is the rancher in position B.
4. Hank is standing to the immediate right of Pablo Sanchez.
Note: You will need the answers from this logic grid to solve Trilogy Part 2: Ranch Dressing.
AnswerZeke McCool is in position A.
Carl Lovelace is in position B.
Rusty Ewing is in position C.
Pablo Sanchez is in position D.
Hank Brooks is in position E.
Carl is standing in position B (3). Mr. Ewing is in position C (2). Pablo Sanchez can't be in position B (2) or C (3), so he has to be in position D because Hank is to his immediate right (4). Hank can't be in position A (4) or B (3), so he has to be in position E. Zeke isn't Mr. Ewing in position C (2), so Zeke is in position A, only one left. This leaves Rusty who is in position C and he is Mr. Ewing. Mr. Brooks is in position E (1). Carl is Mr. Lovelace because he isn't Mr. McCool (3), which leaves Zeke as Mr. McCool.
