    It is said that this quiz was made up by Albert Einstein
    and according to him 98% will not solve it.
    
There is a row of five different colour houses.
    Each house is occupied by a man of different nationality.
    Each man has a different pet, prefers a different drink, and smokes different brand of cigarettes.

    1. The Brit lives in the Red house.
    2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
    3. The Dane drinks tea.
    4. The Green house is next to the White house, on the left.
    5. The owner of the Green house drinks coffee.
    6. The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
    7. The owner of the Yellow house smokes Dunhill.
    8. The man living in the centre house drinks milk.
    9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
    10. The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
    11. The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
    12. The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.
    13. The German smokes Prince.
    14. The Norwegian lives next to the Blue house.
    15. The man who smokes Blends has a neighbour who drinks water

    Google doesn't know everything it just goes and searches its cache and finds the most relevant content related to query string.

    Google is like a Liberian that knows where all the books are but it can't tell you whats inside the actual books. :)

    Nice bump. lol

    With some pen and paper it isn't that hard. I had this quiz at Uni. I'm doubtful about those statistics...
