There is a very famous logic puzzle that has been around since at least 1962. There are several names for this puzzle including the “zebra puzzle” or the “Einstein puzzle”, although there is no evidence that our famous genius ever had anything to do with the puzzle. There are several versions but usually they only involve changing colors or cigarette brands or making the cigarettes into cars or such irrelevant changes.
Here’s the thing … supposedly only 2% of the population can solve this puzzle. Is that true? I don’t know but the logic puzzle is a challenge. I’ve solved it, so can you???
