Greatest HumanLogic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
In a survey to find the greatest human being, the top four people and their occupation were listed in Clock magazine. However, only one entry in each field was correctly positioned. The following facts were true. (1) Albert was two places above the bricklayer, (2) Darling was one place below Charles, (3) Curious was two places below the welder. Can you find the 1st name, surname and occupation for each position?
1st place - Isaac
2nd place - Albert
3rd place - Marie
4th place - Charles
1st place - Newtune
2nd place - Eyeline
3rd place - Curious
4th place - Darling
1st place - Welder
2nd place - Gardener
3rd place - Cleaner
4th place - Bricklayer
AnswerUsing (1), Albert is at 1 or 2. If he is at 1, then from (3), Charles is at 2 or 3. However, with Charles at 2 (and Darling at 3), from (2), Curious can only be at 4 and so it is not possible to find just one correct entry in the Surname list (Newtune and Eyeline must be both correct or both incorrect). If Charles is at 3 (with Darling at 4), then from (2), Curious can only be at 3. This gives both Curious and Darling correct (invalid). So Albert must be at 2 (with the bricklayer at 4). From (3), Charles can be at 1 or 3. However, if Charles is at 3 (with Darling at 4), then both Curious and Darling are correct (invalid). So Charles is at 1 (with Darling at 2). From (2), Curious can now be at 3 or 4, but if Curious is at 3 (with the welder at 1) then both the welder and bricklayer are correct (invalid).
