    Who owns the zebra

    On a city block there are five houses in a row, numbered from left to right, each of a different color and inhabited by men of different nationalities, with different pets, drinks and cigarettes. You are given the following clues:

    The Englishman lives in the red house;
    The Spaniard owns the dog;
    Coffee is drunk in the green house;
    The Ukrainian drinks tea;
    The green house is immediately to the right of the ivory house;
    The Old Gold smoker owns snails;
    Kools are smoked in the yellow house;
    Milk is drunk in house #3;
    The Norwegian lives in house #1;
    The man who smokes Chesterfields lives in the house next to the man with the fox;
    Kools are smoked in the house next to the house where the horse is kept;
    The Lucky Strike smoker drinks orange juice;
    The Japanese smokes Parliaments;
    The Norwegian lives next to the blue house;

    Now, who drinks water? And who owns the zebra?
    Regards,
    Rudi

    Re: Who owns the zebra

    The <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Norwegian</span hide> drinks the water and the zebra is owned by the <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Janpanese</span hide>

    Here is the entire solution, if anyone is interested:
    <table border=1><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Number</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Color</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Nationality</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Animal</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Drink</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Cigarettes</span hide></td><td align=right><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">1</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">yellow</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Norwegian</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">fox</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">water</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Kools</span hide></td><td align=right><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">2</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">blue</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Ukrainian</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">horse</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">tea</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Chesterfields</span hide></td><td align=right><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">3</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">red</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Englishman</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">snails</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">milk</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Old Gold</span hide></td><td align=right><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">4</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">ivory</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Spaniard</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">dog</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">orange juice</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Lucky Strike</span hide></td><td align=right><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">5</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">green</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Japanese</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">zebra</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">coffee</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Parliaments</span hide></td></table>
