This is a quiz supposedly written by Einstein last century. He said 98% of the people in the world couldn’t solve the quiz.

Are you among the other two percent?


  1. There are five houses in five different colours.
  2. In each house lives a person of a different nationality.
  3. These five owners each drink a certain beverage, smoke a certain brand of tobacco, and keep a certain pet.
  4. No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of tobacco or drink the same drink.
