A prisoner sat alone in his cell staring through the bars at the six doors to the guardroom beyond them. Suddenly, there was the sound of footsteps. One guard came in through door A and a second entered through door F. They unlocked the cell door. "We shall set you free," said one of the guards, "but first you must pass through all six doors, each door once only, in the correct order. Three are entrances only and three are exits only. Door A must be followed by door B or E; B by C or E; C by D or F; D by A or F; E by B or D; and F by C or D." With that the guards left through door B. In what order must the prisoner pass through the doors?


The prisoner must alternate exits and entrances. List the six possible orders then study the conditions to eliminate possibilities.
