Cutting ClassesLogic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
Three classmates each had a day (Monday, Wednesday, or Friday) off school last week for a different reason. From the clues given below, can you identify their full names, say which day each missed, and work out the reason for his or her absence?
1. Daniel did not have Monday off, but he had to go to the hospital to have his broken arm put into plaster.
2.Geraldine was off school earlier in the week than the pupil (last name Skipper) who had a heavy cold.
3. Lucy's day off wasn't Wednesday, and the upset stomach was not mentioned in the note her mother (not the mother of Ms. Twagg) wrote explaining why she was absent.
Someone else's surname is Hookey.
HintTry putting this information into a grid, it's easier to work it out that way. Use elimination to figure it out.
AnswerName - Day Absent - Reason
Lucy Skipper - Friday - Heavy Cold
Daniel Hookey - Wednesday - Broken Arm
Geraldine Twagg - Monday - Upset Stomach
