Puzzle

US Version

A yellowed photograph shows three couples. In the photo, no man is standing directly above his spouse. Of the three women, two are sisters and are sitting next to each other. The elder sister's husband is the man without a mustache. Everyone in the picture is wearing a hat, save the husband of the younger sister. The woman unrelated to the other two is sitting in front of the younger sister's husband.

So, can you find the man in this bunch who is married to neither sister? Choose from A, B, or C.

Solution

Incorrect

Too bad!

Make sure you read the clues correctly!

Correct

Great job!

The answer is B. Finding the answer to this one just requires close reading.

US Version

You know the elder sister's husband has no mustache, so he must be A. You also know that the younger sister's husband has no hat, so he's obviously C. With those two choices eliminated, the answer is clear.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, the elder sister is E, the little sister is D, and the last woman, F, is married to B.
