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.

5. The Floridian, who is not Katrina, likes kayaking and avalanches.

6. The surfer, the diver, and Dennis used to hang out with Wilma afterschool.

7. Emily loves earthquakes and Rita loves tsunamis.

8. Rita has known the surfer since first grade.

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."

YOU overevaluate things
Don't think too hard, your brain will burst.

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!

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.

Xyzzy...the trick is skipping that clue until you find out further information. Good Logic Grid!

Good teaser. However being in LA I would think that Katrina should be from Louisiana.
