Logic Problem – test your logic
I don't know if this question has already been asked. I am reluctant to read through the rest of the replies because I have never seen this logic puzzle before and do not want to ruin it.

No it only means that one person commited more crimes than the others so you cannot have 2 persons being the answer at a given situation.
And good luck for solving the puzzle, it is a very nice problem, though not as hard as it sounds once you draw the diagram and work one hint at a time. :)

Number means that 2 different person must have different sets of 2 types of crime. For example, Mrs. Brice might be Swindler and Extortionist, while Mr. Crane could be Swindler and Thief, but both could not be Swindler and Extortionist. (examples above might not respect the rules, I made them just to stress my point)

I recently saw this problem here and i gave it a try :D. Many of you do not understand the "5. No two types of crimes were committed by more than one person.". In other words, only one person could commit ONLY two crimes, but it does not say anything about more than 2 and it is not refering to "2 people cannot do the same 2 crimes".
So basicaly, what you have to do is:
-Read 1,2,3,4 again and after each of the hints, try enstablishing how many criminals of that type do you need. For example:
"1. Exactly three people sat next to at least one murderer."
The only option for this one is to use 2 criminals, and they can only sit at the table with someone between them.
-After doing that for all the 4 hints, sum up and you will obtain "11". This is the number of crimes that all the 6 people together have commited.
-Try reducing the number. You have 2 (MR. and MS. Crane) that could only have done 1 crime. (11-2)
After some work you will find out that you can`t charge a person with 2 crimes, because the other "laws" of the game are not allowing you.
For those who wanna see the answer :
Ms.A : M
Ms.B : E, S, T
Mr.C : T
Mr.A : S
Mr.B : M, E, S, T
Ms.C : T
