ALBERT EINSTEIN WROTE THIS RIDDLE EARLY DURING THE 19th CENTURY. HE SAID THAT 98% OF THE WORLD POPULATION WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO SOLVE IT.

Oho…then I should have a try on this brain**ck.

Hey…people do ya wanna try this out by yourself… go ahead, really impressive when
ya see yourself on the 2% and I did it.

….and for the 98%; here is the methodology I have taken.

0. I took a piece of paper and a pencil.
then I did mark a heading nation drink color pet fag later I know it’s a wrong move when I read The man living in the center house drinks milk.

so as easy I jot down…

1 2 3 4 5
nation

drink

color

pet

fag

1. Here the drink-3 is milk.

2. Next green/white house ?
The green house is on the left of the white house.
so 1 is not white and 5 is not green (this was my first flash)

The Norwegian lives in the first house.The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
but ya still need the…

3/4 may be green
4/5 mabe white

Ahahaa…it says 4 is a sure shot for either green/white.

The green house’s owner drinks coffee.
we got 3 is milk… so 5 is white I mean 4 is green.

3. and now yellow/red.

The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
The Brit lives in the red house.

Would ya like to have a try by yourself…or are ya trying it out with me….? Yokay !

So what ya have now….. all colors, two drinks and two nations…eha..?
The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill so who has gotta Horce …?

Lets ask for a drink and another drag…

4. The Dane drinks tea. so may be in either 2 or 5 (because
1-norwy, 3-brit, 4-coffee) The owner who smokes Bluemasters drinks beer, and this too may be in either 2/5 (because 1-dunhill, 3-milk, 4-coffee)

what ya have got…Tea or Beer? Yes “Water” for 1 (really a good twist and I gotta the pace) and Blends for 2 (The man who smokes Blends has a neighbor who drinks water) then I got only 5 to fit for “The owner who smokes Bluemasters drinks beer” and now Germen for 2 who smokes Prince and Pall Mall is for Brit. kewl…the riddle is getting breeze. Are ya with me…hmmm

5. The hint
, The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds helps for the NO-3

6. The Swede keeps dogs as pets
; this is for number 5 (so the numbers 3&5 is out of the game and the NO: 2 too ) Hope ya getting me…?

7. NOw, do ya really need a thought between 1 and 4?
I should say ” The germen who drinks coffee, smokes prince and live in a green house owns THE FISH” (The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats)

Did I help you….to FISH your brain…? or you can refer here or here (I dont know what they are saying ! ) and I’m concluding… FISH YA… GERMEN NUT…!

    Even i solved the puzzle…! i knew that fish is owned by german ! but there is a small mistake in the solution given by the author…. ” and now Germen for 2 who smokes Prince ” german is not 2 actually he is in 4th house as dane drinks tea . tea is the only thing left after milk - 3, coffee - 4, beer -5 and water - 1
