Logic Problem Solution:
The Donut Bakers' Breakfast
From clue 1, two of the workmates ate 3 donuts apiece; while
by clue 10, two bakers each had 2 donuts; the fifth man must
also have eaten two donuts to make a dozen. By clue 1, one of
the men who had 3 donuts had an apple crumb donut as one of
them and the second man who ate 3 donuts had a maple iced
donut as one of them. By clue 4, one man ate a lemon filled
donut and a powdered donut. He isn't King (4); in clue 10,
then, where all five donut eaters are mentioned, he is either
Danny or ate a bowtie donut as his third. However, the latter
is impossible, since the combination of a lemon filled, a
powdered, and a bowtie donut contradicts clue 1. So, Danny
had a lemon filled and a powdered donut. By clue 8, one man
ate both a traditional cake and a chocolate cake donut. In
clue 10, he must be King or have had the bowtie as a third
donut. However, again, the combination of the two cake
donuts and the bowtie conflicts with clue 1. So, King had
a traditional cake donut and a chocolate cake donut. Neither
Danny (6) nor King (8) had a maple iced donut; in clues 1
and 10, therefore, the maple iced donut and the bowtie were
consumed by the same programmer. In clue 10, then, we have
the five donut eaters: Danny, who had a powdered and a lemon
filled; King, who had a traditional cake and a chocolate
cake; the man who ate 3 donuts including a maple frosted
and a bowtie; the man who had 2 donuts including a Bavarian
cream; and the programmer who consumed the coconut cake and
one other donut. By clue 2, one of the men who had 2 donuts
ate a glazed one but not a Bavarian cream; he must be the
man who had a coconut cake in clue 10. By clue 5, Andrew
Beck ate 2 donuts but did not eat a sugar raised donut.
If Andrew had picked a Bavarian cream, the sugar raised donut
would then be the third donut to the maple iced and bowtie;
and, since the apple crumb donut was also one of the pairs
of 3 eaten (1), Andrew would have had a jelly filled to go
with the Bavarian creamno, since Ron did (7). So, Andrew
Beck's 2 donuts were the coconut cake and the glazed. By
clue 7, Ron had a jelly filled donut, which he had either
as a second donut to the Bavarian cream or as a third donut
to the maple iced. If Ron had the jelly filled and the
Bavarian cream, by clue 1, the sugar raised donut would have
been eaten with the maple iced and the bowtie. Since Ron
isn't Watson (7) and Watson didn't have the sugar raised donut
(9), Watson would be Danny. If Ron had the jelly filled as
a third donut to the maple iced and bowtie, the raised donut
would have been eaten with the Bavarian cream (1). Again,
Ron isn't Watson (7) and Watson didn't have the sugar raised
donut (9). Watson would be Danny in either case. Then Danny
had only two donuts, since he didn't have the apple crumb
(9); and King would have had the apple crumb as a third
donut. Trout had the Bavarian cream (3) and Close the
maple filled and bowtie. Trout isn't Ron (3), so Ron must
be Close and have had a jelly filled donut with a maple iced
and a bowtie (7). Trout had a sugar raised donut. Trout is
Mike and King Jeff (11). The five Crispy Cream bakers ate
their dozen donuts as follows:
 Ron Close  bow tie, jelly filled, maple frosted
 Jeff King  apple crumb, chocolate cake, traditional cake
 Andrew Beck  coconut cake, glazed
 Mike Trout  Bavarian cream, sugar raised
 Danny Watson, lemon filled, powdered
