Although obvious, you didnt state what the person is supposed to figure out. Nothing big, just letting you know. Good teaser.

But I remember I did put in the questions... ...

I'll try again! A great puzzle - I loved it. Although you don't ask a question, there is more than one obvious unknown relationship. What is the order of their ages? B is the oldest, C is in the middle and A is the youngest. (This is one of those "I don't believe the difficulty rating" type teasers.) After 20 votes the majority are finding it easy? They are all easy after you click the answer button. I think it is really challenging to establish a method that establishes both sets of orders.

I found it easy... is a simple logic puzzle - 3by 3 grid... as simple as you can get it.

Don't find the question necessary as both possible questions are answered simultaneously.

It was fun and when you get it is was like Duh! Why did it take me so long!
