    Default Figure the answer...win a prize

    Okay ladies, time to test your logical reasoning ability. Remember the research paper I was working all day on? Well, it's finished and so is my own rendition of a logic problem. Be the first to figure it out and win a great prize. I am so excited about putting this on here that I haven't figured out what the prize will be, but I promise it will be something fun...and frugal! Put your thinking caps on ladies here goes:

    A Day At The Fair
    Robin and her three children love to eat jelly on their toast at breakfast every morning. Quite naturally their interest peaked when they read in the paper that there would be a jam and jelly-making contest at the county fair. Each contestant submitted a different flavor of jelly to the contest, wore a different colored apron, and sat together during the judging process. Each person won a ribbon ranging from first to fourth prize. Use the clues below to determine the order that each person sat, the colors of their aprons, the prize each contestant won, and the flavor of jelly each person submitted.

    1. The four contestants are Shane, the one wearing the red apron, the one who won first place and the one who entered grape jam.
    2. The contestant who won second place sat between the contestants who entered the peach and berry jams.
    3. Nicole sat next to both the one who entered the grape jam and the one who won the first place ribbon.
    4. The contestant wearing the green apron sat to the left of Adrian, who did not sit next to his mother.
    5. The contestant wearing the blue apron sat next to both the one wearing the red apron and the one wearing the yellow apron.
    6. The fourth place winner made plum jam.

    It is easiest if you make a fill in chart like those found in crossword puzzle books that feature logic puzzles.

    GOOD LUCK...

    Robin, it is too late at night for me to use my brain. Especially one of these. My mom calls these "Johnny had 6 apples" problems. Gave her nightmares as a child, I think. I will try tomorrow.

    Heaven,
    I have similar answers to you. I don't think Nicole could be in 2nd place and make the peach jam because, 2nd place person sits between peach and berry jam. If Nicole made the peach...That won't work for her to be second. I love to do these kinds of problems but, this one is a stinker Robin! I'll keep working on this.We'll figure it out yet Heaven!

    I have completely done this wrong. because none of them made jams they all made jellies. soooooooooo if the winners all won with jams than Robin and her children couldn't have won. think about it. Next time maybe i will read the directions.
