Dennis, Emily, Katrina, Rita, and Wilma are five friends who went to elementary school together. However, in 6th grade, each of them moved to a different state or country and are now starting to forget where each person is living, what water sport each person likes, and which natural disaster fascinates each of them. Can you help them sort out their homes and hobbies?

Friends: Dennis, Emily, Katrina, Rita, Wilma
Locations: Mexico, Texas, Cuba, Alabama, Florida
Hobbies: Waterskiing, Scuba Diving, Surfing, Kayaking, Swimming
Natural Disasters: Avalanches, Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Earthquakes, Tsunamis

1. The five friends are Emily, the waterskier, the hurricane and avalanche fanatics, and the Texan.

2. If Dennis is the Cuban, then Emily is the Mexican. If Dennis is the hurricane lover, then Rita loves avalanches. One of these statements is true.

3. Katrina and Dennis are the waterskier and the hurricane fanatic.

4. The waterskier, surfer, and scuba diver live in Mexico, Cuba, and Texas and are fascinated by tornadoes, tsunamis, and earthquakes.

 say_aah Dec 13, 2005 Good one... donquixote235 Dec 13, 2005 I like how each of the friends is named after one of the hurricanes from this last hurricane season! miyukina Dec 13, 2005 fun! yeah...friends 4eva... (user deleted) Dec 13, 2005 I liked it cuz it's not too easy or hard! Winner4600 Dec 13, 2005 donquixote...I was wondering if anyone would notice that...Also, the location is where they struck (but don't tell anyone) chaskey Dec 14, 2005 I finally got this after many tries and much storming! It is clever and fun! Winner4600 Dec 14, 2005 thanx! (user deleted) Dec 15, 2005 Clue 2 is problematic. It is tempting to deduce that if Rita does not love avalanches, that the second statement is false and therefore the first statement is true. However, Rita not loving avalanches only makes the second statement false if you find that Dennis is in fact the hurricane lover. If you find that Dennis loves tsunamis, you know nothing about Rita. Also, declaring that one of the statements is true does not mean that the other statement is false. It would be more correct to state, "Either Dennis is Cuban or Dennis is the Hurricane lover." Winner4600 Dec 15, 2005 YOU overevaluate things Don't think too hard, your brain will burst. jovichic86 Dec 16, 2005 I thought it was GREAT that the names were after the Hurricanes and their respective destruction zones. Being from Texas, I enjoyed it greatly (the teaser, not Rita). Good Job and keep them coming! DaveC Dec 16, 2005 Actually, Xyzzy, you would have to say that either Dennis is Cuban and Emily is Mexican, or Dennis is the hurricane lover and Rita loves avelanches, but I agree with Winner, don't analyze too much, that takes the fun out of doing these puzzles. Winner4600 Dec 16, 2005 I was in THREE hurricanes!!!

Good Logic Grid! Winner4600 Jan 19, 2006 thanks, everyone, for all the good comments. bashbach Jan 22, 2006 Fun and challenging, which is all I ask of in a logic grid. Thanks for the great teaser. roscoep Feb 02, 2006 Good teaser. However being in LA I would think that Katrina should be from Louisiana.

I wanted to recognize that. sundaisy227 Feb 08, 2006 had trouble figuring out the waterskier and hurricane fanatics--good job teen_wiz Feb 18, 2006 That was fun!
