Babelfish CourtLogic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
Many moons ago Mad Ade lived in a block of houses called Babelfish Court.
There was a number of residents from different cultures all living together, speaking various languages. 3 speak Greek, Italian and English, 2 speak Greek and Italian, 7 speak English, 2 speak Italian and English, 1 speaks English and Greek, 1 speaks Italian only and 3 speak Greek only. How many residents are there altogether?
AnswerThere are 13 Residents of Babelfish Court.
If we start by adding up the number of people who speak 1 language only.
1 speaks Italian only
3 speak Greek only
Equals 4 people
Then add up those who speak more than one language.
3 speak Greek, Italian and English
2 speak Greek and Italian
2 speak Italian and English
1 speak English and Greek
Equals 8 people
4 + 8 = 12
However if you look at the people that speak more than one language 6 of them speak English but the clues tell you that 7 people speak English, hence 1 person speaks English only.
4 + 8 + 1 = 13 Residents
