I's probably similar to (or equivalent to) Einstein's riddle.

Scenario:

The world's five oldest recorded and most precious elements (Platinum, Gold, Rhodium, Palladium and Rhenium) has been stolen from a Metal Trading Corporation.

The police was able to track down the thief to a street with five identical houses

But they can't search all the houses at once and if they picked the wrong one, the thief will know they're on his trail.



When you arrive on the scene, the police tell you what they know:

1. Each house's owner is of a different Nationality (Miriamian, Rodrigonian, Martian, Jejomarian and Gracian); drinks a different brand of alcohol and smokes a different type of cigar.

2. Each house's interior walls are painted with a different color

3. Each house stores a different element/s, one of which contains the bag full of stolen precious elements.



After a few hours of expert investigation, you gather some clues:

1. The man in the center house drinks Lambanog.

2. The Miriamian lives in the first house.

3. The Miriamian lives next to the blue house.

4. The green house is just to the left of the violet one.

5. The owner of the green house drinks Red Horse.

6. The Rodrigonian lives in the red house.

7.The owner of the yellow house smokes Marlboro.

8.The man who possesses the element Aluminum lives next to the Marlboro smoker.

9.The Hope smoker has a female neighbor who drinks Matador.

10. The man who smokes Lucky Strike drinks San Mig Light.

11. The Martian drinks Fundador.

12. The Jejomarian smokes Winston.

13. The Jackpot smoker keeps a metallic element named Copper.

14. The Hope smoker has a neighbor who keeps the element Iron.

15. The Gracian keeps the element Silver.


Who do you think is the culprit?

A man by the name of Theodore Lawrence Devon Rothschilde.

I'm having a 1 + 1 = 3 kind of day, so I'm not even going to go there.

Are you asking "how" to solve?

If so, same as this famous one:
