Pampering Your Pets is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. The puzzle must be solved in order to progress the story.

Puzzle

You've decided to give some treats to your pets, who all like different things, but you've forgotten what each animal likes.

You're sure that A likes either ice cream or chocolate and that B likes pie or ice cream. You're also certain that C likes either pie or chocolate, and it's either A or D that is the ice cream fan. Unfortunately, you've no idea which pet likes cake.

Using the information you do remember, give each pet their favorite treat!

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

The things you remember about your pets' tastes are all correct, so don't worry about that.

The way to solve logic problems like these is to deal with each piece of information one at a time.

For instance, A, B and D are mentioned as potentially liking ice cream. Can you narrow this down?

Imagine B is the one that likes ice cream. This would contradict your memory of A or D being the ice cream lover, and is therefore incorrect. Since B's favorite treat cannot be ice cream, it must be pie.

So, what does this mean for C?

If B's favorite treat is pie, then C's must be chocolate.

This means that A and D either like ice cream or cake. You know that A's favorite treat is either ice cream or chocolate, so by looking at the remaining options, its favorite treat must be...?

Put everything you know together!

A likes ice cream or chocolate, but since C must be the chocolate fan, A's favorite treat must be ice cream.

Consequently, A likes ice cream, B likes pie, and C likes chocolate.

There's only one treat left, and that one must be D's favorite!


Solution

Incorrect

Too bad.

Try using the Memo Function if you find things confusing.

Correct

Pet-tacular!

A likes ice cream, B likes pie, C likes chocolate and D likes cake.

It turns out the pets weren't pets at all! Just as well, really - not one of those treats is suitable for animals!
