ARE YOU IN THE TOP 2% OF INTELLIGENT PEOPLE IN THE
WORLD?
SOLVE THE RIDDLE AND FIND OUT.
There are no tricks, just pure logic, so good luck and
don't give
up.
1. In a street there are five houses, painted five
different
colours.
2. In each house lives a person of different
nationality
3. These five homeowners each drink a different kind
of beverage,
smoke
a
different brand of cigar and keep a different pet.

THE QUESTION: WHO OWNS THE FISH?


HINTS
1. The Brit lives in a red house.
2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
3. The Dane drinks tea.
4. The Green house is on the left of the White house.
5. The owner of the Green house drinks coffee.
6. The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
7. The owner of the Yellow house smokes Dunhill.
8. The man living in the center house drinks milk.
9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
10. The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one
who keeps cats.
11. The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who
smokes
Dunhill.
12. The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.
13. The German smokes Prince.
14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
15. The man who smokes Blends has a neighbor who
drinks water.

ALBERT EINSTEIN WROTE THIS RIDDLE EARLY DURING THE
19th
CENTURY. HE SAID THAT 98% OF THE WORLD POPULATION
WOULD
NOT BE ABLE TO SOLVE IT.

Not the Swede! It's the Brit since it seems like a pet that Brits would have...

wasn't too hard once i started writing things down, only took me about ten minutes or so. process of elimination really. basically, the German who lives in the Green (fourth) house, drinks coffee and smokes Prince owns the fish. thanks for posting this, ideal, and congrats to pertheusual and Ayamael for being able to solve the problem.

Think deeply of simple things.

2%? That's got to be a wrong percentage, because 3 or 4 people here have already figured it out :\.
Green house >> German >> Coffee >> Prince >> Fish.

What does Einstein think the world is made up of? Idiots?
lol... that's a rhetorical question btw.

It's the German:
From the first to the last the order of the houses is:
-Yellow House: Water, Dunhill, Cats and the owner is Norwegian
-Blue House: Tea, Blends, Horses, and the owner is Dane
-Red House: Milk, Pall Mall, Birds, and the owner is Brit
-Green House: Coffee, Prince, Fish and the owner is German
-White House: Beer, Blue Master, dogs and the owner is Sweeden
I think the problem of this test is that BY THE TIME OF EINSTEIN only 2% of the world population might had been able to solve the riddle, but with all the improvements of the education and the rise of the cutting-edge communications and all the other stuff, we're now, not more intelligent, but better prepared and with a more developed analysis capability

true true... when einstein said those words he did so in the 19th century... and it's like the 21th century now... lots of advancements have been made... even the way people think has changed...

the 2% of people referred to the 2% then... not now...
