I was working with Einstein's riddle yesterday and after some time I figured out a solution. But then I thought. What if the whole neighbourhood is a circle? (If you played GTA San Andreas like Grove street). What if the 5 houses are in a circle and not a straight line. Would that give a different answer? Has anyone else ever thought of this?
If you do not remember the full riddle here it is:
1. There are 5 houses in 5 different colours. In each house lives a person with a different nationality. 2. The 5 owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand, and keep a certain pet. 3. No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar/cigarette or drink the same beverage. The question is "Who owns the fish?" Facts: The Brit lives in the red house The Swede keeps dogs as pets The Dane drinks tea The green house is to the left of the white house The green house's owner drinks coffee The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill The man living in the centre house drinks milk The Norwegian lives in the first house The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats The man who keeps the horse lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill The owner who smokes Bluemasters drinks beer The German smokes Prince The Norwegian lives next to the Blue House The man who smokes blends has a neighbour who drinks water
