Logic Problem Solution:
Driver's Tests

By clue 6, Christy failed her driver's test right before Gear failed. By clue 11, Christy isn't Lane or Walker. So, Christy is either Turner or Parker. If Christy were Parker, by clues 6 and 9, the person who failed for not looking before pulling into the passing lane would have gone immediately ahead of Christy Parker, who would have immediately preceded Gear in the test. By clue 3, Tony, Turner, and the person who failed for driving too slowly failed their driver's tests in consecutive order. Tony isn't Gear (10), and Turner isn't the one who failed to check before pulling into the passing lane (5). There is thus no way for clue 3 to work if Christy were Parker because there would be six examinees among clues 3, 6, and 9. Christy is Turner. Combining clues 3 and 6, then, Tony was followed by Christy Turner and then Gear, who failed for going too slowly. By clue 8, Joel immediately preceded Lisa at the test. Joel didn't fail for driving too slowly (1), so he and Lisa are the fourth and fifth driver's test takers to the three already named. Then Abigail is Gear. If Joel and Lisa had gone 4th and 5th, by clue 9, Joel would have failed for not looking before passing, and Lisa would be Parker--no (2). So, Joel was 1st to take his test followed by Lisa 2nd (8), with Tony, Christy, and Abigail then following 3rd, 4th, and 5th. Since Lisa isn't Parker (2), by clue 9, Lisa failed for passing without looking, and Tony is Parker. Lisa is Walker, and Tony failed for backing over the curb in the parking test (4). Joel is Lane. He failed for making a right turn on red without stopping (7). Christy failed her driver's test for not signaling a left turn. Mr. Plate failed his first five examinees in order

  • 1st - Joel Lane, right turn on red without stop
  • 2nd - Lisa Walker, pulled out to pass without looking
  • 3rd - Tony Parker, backed over the curb while parking
  • 4th - Christy Turner, failed to signal a left turn
  • 5th - Abigail Gear, drove too slowly on Parkway Copyright © 2000-2007 by Calvin J. Hamilton & Randall L. Whipkey. All rights reserved. Privacy Statement.
