On a recent trip to St. Petersburg, Barbie Kenn bought a set of Matryoshka,
Russian nesting dolls where each holds the doll(s) smaller than it. Each of
the five dolls in the set is a caricature of a noted Russian ruler or Soviet
leader, and each is decorated in a dominant color scheme, one in green. From
the information about opening the set of nesting dolls below, can you order the
Matryoshka from largest to smallest, determining which historical
Russian is on each doll and its dominant color?
- The Lenin doll, which isn't the one with a blue motif, is the middle,
or 3rd largest, of the five nesting dolls.
- The Ivan the Terrible doll isn't the one done in red.
- When the Peter the Great doll is opened, the next doll in the set that
is revealed is the gold one.
- When the blue-colored doll is opened, the Ivan the Terrible figure is
the next to appear.
- The Catherine the Great doll is nested immediately inside of the
- The blue-hued doll isn't the one of Peter the Great.
- The gold doll, which isn't the smallest of the five, isn't the one
with Mikhail Gorbachev on it.
