Logic Problem Solution:
The Forgetfuls in France

By clue 3, one Forgetful family member lost the guidebook at either Thursday's or Friday's tourist locale; and by clue 5, another lost the umbrella at the other of those two days' stops. Therefore, the hat and video camera were lost on Monday and Tuesday or vice versa. By clue 3, the visit to the Eiffel Tower was on Monday or Tuesday; and by clue 5, the tour of the Palace or Versailles was the other of those two days. Since the video camera wasn't left behind at the Eiffel Tower (6), it was lost at Versailles. By elimination, one Forgetful forget his or her hat at the top of the Eiffel Tower. If the trip to the Palace of Versailles in clue 5 had been on Monday and the Eiffel Tower excursion on Tuesday, then the hat would have been the item Frannie lost (3, 5)--no (1). So, the Forgetfuls went up the Eiffel Tower on Monday, where one of the family lost a hat; Fred lost his video camera at Versailles on Tuesday; Frannie lost the guidebook on Wednesday (3, 5), and the umbrella was lost on Thursday. Frankie lost the hat and his mother Frieda the umbrella (2). By clue 4, Frieda left the umbrella at the Louvre; and Frannie lost her guidebook at Chartres Cathedral. The Forgetfuls left behind personal items in France as follows:

  • Monday -- Frankie lost his hat at the Eiffel Tower
  • Tuesday -- Fred left the video camera at the Palace
  • of Versailles
  • Wednesday -- Frannie lost the guidebook at Chartres Cathedral
  • Thursday -- Frieda forgot her umbrella at the Louvre Copyright © 2000-2007 by Calvin J. Hamilton & Randall L. Whipkey. All rights reserved. Privacy Statement.
