Don, Frank, Jenny, and Ken each come from one state, either Alaska, Maine, Montana, or Oklahoma. They each speak one primary language, either English, french, Russian, or Spanish. And they each have one of four pets, a chinchilla, a dog, a hamster, or a turtle.
Figure out which language and what pet each of the four people have, using the following clues.
Please help. Thanks!Hi,
One way to approach this is to make a chart. Write each person's name, and then list the places they could live, the languages they could speak and the possible pets. You can work them all together, but I'll only do Jenny's and let you do the rest.
Now go through the clues and see what you can conclude or eliminate. If you can rule out something for that person put an X beside it. If three things in a column have an X beside them, then you know that the remaining one is what corresponds to that person. If you know something corrsponds to a particular person, put a Y beside it and then put an X beside that item for all the other people.
Let's look at the clues that help us with Jenny:
From (4) we know Jenny does not speak French. Put an X by French.
Similarly from (5) SHE does not speak Russian or live in Montana. From (6) we know Don owns the chinchilla, so we put an X beside chinchilla for Jenny. Since we know she's the kid from Oklahoma, by (8) she doesn't speak Russian or own a dog.
So far, this is what we have for Jenny:
Now you try the rest. Have fun!
