Jeffrey looks for a reason to write off another business lunch.


There are six families living in an apartment building which has three floors.  The apartments are arranged so that even-numbered apartments have a door on the right while odd-numbered ones have a door on the left.  Apartments 1 and 2 are on the first floor; 3 and 4 are on the second; and 5 and 6 are on the top floor.  The Simpsons have  a door to the right and are living between two families.

The Smiths live next door to the Simpsons.  The Gables live in an even-numbered apartment with the Browns below them.  Both the Butchers and the Fishers live next to families whose names start with different letters.

  1. What is the number of the Simpsons' apartment?

  2. In which apartment do the Butchers reside

  3. Who lives next door to the Browns?

  4. Who lives above the Simpsons?

  5. Who lives in apartment number 1?

  6. Who lives at number 6?

  7. Who lives on the first floor nest to the Fishers?

  8. Who can hear the Butchers dancing above them?

Last month's solution:
Since opposite sides of a dice always add up to seven, and the first and third dice have the same vertical orientation, the numbers must be a one and a six.  In fact, modern dice are always marked counter-clockwise in serial order, so the top face would be a one and the bottom a six.

The leading scientist in cancer research is on the brink of a break through that will basically eradicate almost all forms of cancer.  He is also going to die within the month if he does not receive a vital kidney transplant.  A matching kidney has been identified but two other matches (a boy of 10 and a mother of 3) are ahead of him on the list.  What do you do?
