Lateral Thinking XVII

Post by Holmes »

The Revival of the Lateral Thinking, for S.H that miss LT.  ;)


A gambler bet on a horse race, but the bookee wouldn't tell him the results of the race. The bookee gave clues as to how the five horses finished -- which may have included some ties -- and wouldn't pay the gambler off unless the gambler could determine how the five horses finished based on the following clues:

[color=blue][color=blue]â—¦Penuche Fudge finished before Near Miss and after Whispered Promises.
â—¦Whispered Promises tied with Penuche Fudge if and only if Happy Go Lucky did not tie with Skipper's Gal.
â—¦Penuche Fudge finished as many places after Skipper's Gal as Skipper's Gal finished after Whispered
Promises if and only if Whispered Promises finished before Near Miss.[/color]
The gambler thought for a moment, then answered correctly. How did the five horses finish the race?

Thanks a lot!:D

[spoiler]
From 1st statement we get Whispered Promises > Penuche Fudge > Near Miss
From 2nd statement we get Happy Go Lucky and Skipper's Gal tied.
From 3rd statement we get Whispered Promises > Skipper's Gal > Penuche Fudge

Leading us to:
1) Whispered Promises
2) Happy Go Lucky, Skipper's Gal
3) Penuche Fudge
4) Near Miss

Ah-- I miss them too. Too much work at the moment to even drop by to see whether there are any new ones. I'm glad you're keeping it up, though, Holmes.
Move, and the way will open.
