Puzzle

US Version

A shop owner points to each of her exotic cats and says something strange:

"Red is next to Blue."
"Black is not white."
"Green is not green."
"Blue is three over from Black."
"Red is on the end."

So, then, which cat is White?

UK Version

A shopkeeper points at her exotic cat ornaments and says something strange:

"Ruby is next to Sapphire.
Ebony is not white.
Jade is not green.
Sapphire is three over from Ebony.
Ruby is on the end."

So, which cat is Pearl?

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

Just to be unique, the shop owner has named each cat a different color than it actually is. Isn't that just dandy...

"Red is next to Blue," and "Red is on the end," so Blue is either B or D.

IF "Blue is three over from Black," we just determined that Blue is either B or D, so black must be A or E.

However, "Black is not white," so Black must be A!

When trying to match this shape, be careful to match the size as well.

If A is Black, then D must be Blue. What's next to Blue? The last park should be pretty simple now.

"Red is next to Blue," and "Red is on the end," so E must be Red.

A is Black.
D is Blue.
E is Red.

Now consider the conditions you haven't accounted for, and you'll figure it out!


Solution

Incorrect

Too bad!

This puzzle's kind of mean, huh?

The trick is to change your way of thinking.

Correct

Good thinking!

US Version

The green cat is named White.

The shop owner named each cat after a different color that its coat. She's pretty weird, huh...

UK Version

The green cat is called Pearl.

The shopkeeper named each ornament after a precious material of a different colour. She would appear to be a bit eccentric...
