Since the turn of the last century one of the quickest ways to traverse from one end of the legendary land of Madadia to the other was via the Kebabama canal. Regular passenger cruises traveled the length of the Kebabama canal every day.

On one particular run there were six passengers who all required certain conditions whilst travelling on the three day journey.

Each level of the cruiser contains six cabins numbered 1-6 consecutively, and were arranged in a row and are separated by thin dividers. These cabins must be assigned to the six passengers based on following facts.

Miss Fortune's work as a travelling Kebab salesperson requires her to speak on the phone frequently throughout the day.

Miss D'work prefers cabin number 5 as 5 is her lucky number.

Mr. Buss and Mr. Allot often talk to each other during their work as second hand underpants repairers and prefer to have adjacent cabins.

Mr. Lastrain, Mr. Buss and Mr. Meaner all smoke. Miss D'work is allergic to smoke and must have non-smokers adjacent to her.

Mr. Meaner needs silence during work.

Can you tell the cabin numbers of each of them?


The cabins from left to right (1-6) are of Mr. Meaner, Mr. Lastrain, Mr. Buss, Mr. Allot, Miss D'work and Miss Fortune

From (2), cabin number 5 is assigned to Miss D'work.

As Miss D'work is allergic to smoke and Mr. Lastrain, Mr. Buss & Mr. Meaner all smoke, they must be in cabin numbers 1, 2 and 3 not necessarily in the same order. Also, Miss Fortune and Mr. Allot must be in cabin 4 and 6.

From (3), Mr. Buss must be in cabin 3 and Mr. Allot must be in cabin 4. Thus, Miss Fortune is in cabin 6.

As Mr. Meaner needs silence during work and Mr. Buss is in cabin 3 who often talks to Mr. Allot during work, Mr. Meaner must be in cabin 1. Hence, Mr. Lastrain is in cabin 2.

Thus, the cabins' numbers are
1# Mr. Meaner,
2# Mr. Lastrain,
3# Mr. Buss,
4# Mr. Allot,
5# Miss D'work,
6# Miss Fortune
