# Thread: Who owns the zebra

1. ## 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?

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:
