Jim, Mike, Steve and Tom are standing on the stairs. You know the following about them:
1. Jim and Tom are not next to each other.
2. Steve and Mike are one step apart.
3. Tom is on a higher step than Steve.
So, which of A, B, C, and D is Jim?
Jim is D. Steve and Mike are next to each other, and Tom is above Steve. Since you know Jim is not next to Tom, he must be on the lowest step, so he is D.
A is Tom, and Steve and Mike are B and C, although there is no way of knowing which is which with this information.
