 Puzzle ID: #26803 Fun: (3.07) Difficulty: (1.91) Category: Logic-Grid Submitted By: Rob2003

Five parents pick up their children at the Parkway Elementary School every Tuesday to bring the kids to their after school activity. Five children all attended a different after school activity and their parents always arrive at different times (between 3:00 pm and 3:30 pm).

Child's name: Colleen, Donald, Josh, Margie, and Mary

Parent's name: Ann, Capri, Kathy, David and Lynne

Last Name: Dobson, Holden, Johnson, Steinway, and Walsh

Times picked up: 3:00, 3:10, 3:20, 3:25, and 3:30

Activities: ballet, chess, fencing, football, and hiking.

Determine each child's full name, the first name of the parent picking them up (all the parents' last names are the same as their child's), the time each was picked up, and the activity each child is being brought to.

1. Margie's best friend's mother, Mrs. Dobson, arrived before Kathy came to pick up her son. Mrs. Walsh picked up her daughter for fencing.

2. Josh Steinway loved football as much as Donald liked chess and they both liked being the last two to be picked up.

3. David Holden picked up his daughter for her hiking as soon as he could, but Lynne was always there before he was.

4. Margie liked being the first one picked up but she didn't take ballet or hiking.

5. Lynne's daughter was not Margie.

6. In order of their departure from school: Ann, the girl who took ballet, Mary Holden, the boy who took football, and Capri Johnson.

This is very clever and most enjoyable! scm14 Nov 08, 2005 Not too hard...one read through and a little thinking, and I got it. Good one! DaveC Nov 08, 2005 I thought it was pretty easy one read through and I didn't use all the grid, or could it be that I'm getting better at this???? DaveC Nov 08, 2005 Oh by the way good job Rob bagogirl Nov 08, 2005 Wow, that was a really good teaser, it took me like 7 minutes and i am surprised i got it right! Again, that was a great teaser!!!! mejoza Nov 09, 2005 Not nearly as hard as people are rating it. You give a lot of straight away clues that don't require the deduction. If one just goes in and puts in the "for sures" the elimination clues are barely needed. I did rate it fun, however because you used different kinds of clues. Splatt Nov 11, 2005 This was pretty easy for me. But enjoyable too.
