Chinese Food Deliveries
The residents of the Summerset Arms all get a yen for Chinese food.
September 12, 2005
By clue 1, Fred Freeman lives directly above the person who ordered Sesame Chicken; while by clue 5, Chris Campbell lives directly above the person who ordered Moo Shu Pork. The diners who ordered Sesame Chicken and Moo Shu Pork live on different floors of the Summerset Arms (clue 4); so either Fred Freeman lives on the 3rd floor with Chris Campbell on the 2nd, or Chris Campbell lives on the 3rd floor with Fred Freeman on the 2nd. If the latter were the case, by clues 5 and 10, Freeman wouldn't live directly under Campbell but would live on the same floor as the person who ordered Moo Shu Pork. By clue 8, the people who ordered Egg Foo Yung and Peking Duck live on the same floor, which would be the 3rd floor. Then Freeman would have ordered Combination Fried Rice and live directly above Bill Bogard (2). By elimination, the person who called out for Hot Crispy Beef would live on the 1st floor under the person who ordered Moo Shu Pork, who would be Alice Adams (7). Dan Davis would live on the 3rd floor (3), and Erica Ervin would live on the 1st floor--no (6). So, Chris Campbell doesn't live on the 3rd floor; Fred Freeman lives on the 3rd floor directly above the person who ordered Sesame Chicken (1), who lives on the 2nd floor across from Chris Campbell (9) who lives directly above the one who had Moo Shu Pork brought in (5). By clue 8, the people who ordered Egg Foo Yung and Peking Duck live on the same floor, which is the 3rd floor. Then Campbell ordered Combination Fried Rice and lives directly above Bill Bogard (2). By elimination, the person who called out for Hot Crispy Beef lives on the 1st floor under the person who ordered Sesame Chicken, who is Alice Adams (7). Dan Davis lives on the 3rd floor (3), and Erica Ervin ordered Hot Crispy Beef. Davis ordered Peking Duck and Freeman Egg Foo Yung (3). By clue 11, Erica Ervin lives in 1A, with Adams then in 2A and Freeman in 3A. In sum, the Chinese food was delivered as follows:

  • 1A -- Erica Ervin, Hot Crispy Beef
  • 1B -- Bill Bogard, Moo Shu Pork
  • 2A -- Alice Adams, Sesame Chicken
  • 2B -- Chris Campbell, Combination Fried Rice
  • 3A -- Fred Freeman, Egg Foo Yung
  • 3B -- Dan Davis, Peking Duck
