The following statements were made by each of five people at a family reunion. They are each referring to one of the other four people (in other words the person being referred to in the first statement, Claire, is making one of the other statements). Can you determine who made each statement? Assume that all parents are married and that all married couples are heterosexual, married only once, still married, and attending together.

1. "Claire is my sister-in-law."
2. "Susan is my wife."
3. "Roger is my father."
4. "Melissa is my niece."
5. "Danielle is my only sibling."


Answer

1. Susan
2. Roger
3. Danielle
4. Claire
5. Melissa

Explanation:
Statement 2 has to be spoken by Roger, since he is the only man.
Since there is only one marriage implied here, Statement 1 must be made by Susan, Roger's wife, making Claire Roger's sister.
Claire must be the one referring to her niece Melissa in Statement 4. Melissa could say Statement 3, but that would leave Danielle referring to herself in Statement 5. Therefore Melissa says Statement 5 and Danielle says Statement 3.
