Whether you were aware of it or not, there exists a riddle in history that is reported to have been designed by Einstein when he was still a young boy. Some people believe that it was actually written by Lewis Carrol instead. However, there is no solid proof that connects it to either of the two. Whatever the case may be, the riddle itself is quite tough and despite requiring completely logical thinking it has only been solved by two percent of the entire world. No wonder it is termed the ‘Einstein’s riddle’. Why don’t you have a go at it?
There exist a total of five houses in a row, each bearing a different color. Each person in every house bears a unique nationality than the other. All the five owners of the houses smoke a specific brand of cigar, drink a specific sort of beverage and even tame a specific pet in heir house. No owner drinks the same beverage, no owner smokes the same brand of cigar and no owner tames the same pet as the other. Here are some more facts that you must consider before reaching a conclusion to the Einstein riddle, folks:
- The Brit lives in the red house.
- The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
- The Dane drinks tea.
- The green house is on the immediate left of the white house.
- The green house’s owner drinks coffee.
- The owner who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
- The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
- The owner living in the center house drinks milk.
- The Norwegian lives in the first house.
- The owner who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
- The owner who keeps the horse lives next to the one who smokes Dunhill.
- The owner who smokes Bluemasters drinks beer.
- The German smokes Prince.
- The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
- The owner who smokes Blends lives next to the one who drinks water.
