Last week, Rose and Ron Robbins packed all five of their children
off to different institutions of higher learning and found out the
meaning of "empty nest" syndrome: the peaceful bliss of a house all
for themselves. The five Robbins kids are a year apart in school,
from the oldest who is studying for a master's degree in grad school
down through senior, junior, and sophomore to the new freshman; and
all have progressed normally since entering college. Each is majoring
in a different subject. Given the schedule below, you should be able
to solve the Logic Puzzle of how the young Robbinses "flew the nest":
each's year in school and major and where he or she attends college.
- Jennifer, who isn't studying computer science, isn't the Robbins
child at Ocean City A. & M.
- The mathematics major is one year behind the student at Summerset
- While still in high school, Tara kept her dad company when he
drove to pick up her sibling studying drama and the one at
Maryland State for Christmas vacation.
- The one majoring in physics isn't the freshman.
- Brad, who doesn't attend Ocean City A. & M., isn't the computer
- Jennifer's major isn't physics.
- When the Ocean City A. & M. student first went away to school,
Kristin--then not yet college age--moved into the person's room
in the Robbins' house.
- The mathematics student isn't the one at Winterhaven University.
- The Maryland State student isn't the senior.
- When the computer science major left for college for the first
time, Ian, who wasn't yet in college, helped pack the car.
- Kristin isn't the freshman Robbins.
- Jennifer isn't at Winterhaven University.
- The Robbins at Emily Dickinson College isn't the one majoring in
- Brad isn't studying at Winterhaven U.
