Puzzle

US Version

Six moviegoers need to be seated at the theater, and it's your job to find an arrangement that will satisfy all of their requirements:

A: "I refuse to sit next to, behind, or in front of C."
B: "I can't stand the front row."
C: "I don't like the left or right seats."
D: "I hate the back row and the left side."
E: "I prefer being on the right side."
F: "Anything but the front or left seats."

So...where should each person sit?

Hints

US Version

Try using the Memo function to write down the possibilities for each seat.

A depends on C, so keep those two on hold while you figure out the rest.

UK Version

Try using the Memo Function to write down the possibilities for each of the seats.

US Version

After writing down the possibilities for each seat, it should become clear that there's just one decision you have to make. Only one person doesn't mind the back-left seat. Who is it?

UK Version

After writing down the possibilities for each of the seats, it becomes clear that only one person doesn't mind sitting in the front-left seat. Who is it?

US Version

B is fine sitting in the back-left seat.

Since there's no one else who wants to sit in the remaining left-side seat, put A in there. Now you should know where to put C.

UK Version

A is the only one who will sit in the front-left seat. That should tell you where to put C.

Next, as nobody else is willing to sit in the back-left seat, B should be seated behind A.

US Version

C gets the middle seat in the back row.

The only spot left for F, then, is the back-right seat.

If you keep putting the moviegoers in their seats one by one like this, you'll have this puzzle solved in no time!

UK Version

Now that you know C gets the middle seat in the back row, the only spot left for F is the back-right one.

You'll get all the seats assigned in no time if you work them out one by one.

Incorrect

Too bad!

US Version

There's a seating arrangement that will make everybody happy. You just have to find it!

UK Version

There is a seating arrangement that will make everyone happy. You just have to find it.

Correct

US Version

Blockbuster!

The only two options for C are the middle seat in either the front or back row. Where you work in the other requests, this is the only arrangement that will make everybody happy.

UK Version

Excellent!

The only two options for C are the middle seat in the front or back row.

When you try to fit the other requests around that, this is the only arrangement that will make them all happy.
