|From the introduction, the five new programmers at Vaporware, Inc., include two
women and three men. One of the men is Mr. Screen (clue 1), who isn't Peter (1)
or Jeff (5) and is thus Chad. Neither Peter, Chad (1), Melanie (4), nor
Alice (8) is the new hire from Power Tech, so Jeff is. In clue 1, then, where
all five of the computer programmers are listed, Alice and Melanie are
assigned to the E-Mail Tool and Graphical Interface teams, in some order.
Neither Jeff (5) nor Peter (9) is the one on the Applications Server team,
so Chad Screen is. By clue 6, neither of the women graduated from Summerset
State. By clue 10, Chad also didn't attend Summerset State; Peter did.
Then Peter isn't on the Call Center team (10); he is on the Database team,
and Jeff works on the Call Center product. By clue 13, Peter is Mr. Boardman.
The new hire from the University of the North isn't Chad (7) and isn't on the
Graphical Interface team (11); she works on the E-Mail Tool. Since the
woman who has been assigned to the Graphical Interface team must be from
Amherst A. & M. or Thurber College, she isn't Ms. Hightower (2), who is on
the E-Mail Tool team. Jeff is Askey (3), and (Ms.) Keys works on the Graphical
Interface team. Ms. Keys is Alice and attended Thurber College (12). Melanie
is Hightower, and Chad Screen graduated from Amherst A. & M. In sum, the five
new hires at Vaporware, Inc., are assigned to the E.phemeral product as follows:
- Alice Keys, Thurber College, Graphical Interface
- Melanie Hightower, Un. of the North, E-Mail Tool
- Chad Screen, Amherst A. & M., Applications Server
- Jeff Askey, Power Tech, Call Center
- Peter Boardman, Summerset State, Database
