Logic Problem Solution:
Volunteers for Habitat for Humanity
By clue 9, three of the Summerset Software employees who volunteer
to build houses are Adam, the director of human resources, and the
one who works as a plumber. Since Roger isn't the director of human
resources or the plumber (6), he is the fourth volunteer to the three
in clue 9. The IT manager isn't Roger (clue 1), doesn't do the
plumbing (4), and isn't Adam (clue 13); he is the fifth volunteer.
Neither Roger (1) nor Adam (13) is Blankenship, Sandler (clue 15), or
Valdes, who is Jesse (8), so they are Edberg and Green or vice versa.
Since neither Sandler (3), Blankenship (7), nor Jesse Valdes (8) does
carpentry, either Edberg or Green, Roger or Adam, does; Adam is the
carpenter (12). The plumber doesn't work as a computer engineer (14),
so Edberg or Green does--Green is the computer engineer (5). Since
Edberg isn't Summerset Software's chief financial officer (17), he
must be the sales representative; and, by elimination, the plumber
is the chief financial officer. By clue 11, Adam is Green and Roger
Edberg. By clue 2, Lou is the chief financial officer. By clue 10,
Will must be the volunteer electrician; he isn't the director of
human resources (16) and is thus the IT manager. Jesse Valdes is the
director of human resources. Lou is Blankenship (1), and Will Sandler.
Valdes does the landscaping and Edberg the roofing (5). In summary,
the Summerset Software volunteers for Habitat for Humanity are
- Lou Blankenship, chief financial officer, plumber
- Roger Edberg, sales representative, roofer
- Adam Green, computer engineer, carpenter
- Will Sandler, IT manager, electrician
- Jesse Valdes, director of human resources, landscaper
