The zebra, monkey, giraffe, elephant, and lion were all competing in the Zoo Animal Olympics. Each competed in a different event: basketball, wrestling, 110 meter hurdles, long jump, and weightlifting. Each animal wore a different color jersey: red, green, blue, orange, and yellow. All of the animals finished in the top 5 of their respective event, but none of them finished in the same place. Also note that these animals have strengths besides being good athletes. There is a mathematician, a trivia buff, a cryptographer, a scientist, and one animal that has a great ability to recognize groups with common attributes.
