Second Opinion On Logical Puzzle Needed

  1. Nov 29, 2011 #1
    So I have got answers to this logical puzzle. However, I feel ill and slow. I have checked this over and over and I am 80% it is totally correct. To make sure I would like a second opinion. Do you get the same answers?

    The puzzle is in quotes:

    "Vera, Winifred, Xanthippe, Yvette and Zelda are all women living in different UK cities (From West to East: Cardiff, Bristol, Bath, Oxford, London). They all have different shoe sizes (4,5,6,7,8) and have favourite foods (pizza, curry, pasta, sorbet and cake). Given the following clues, can you work out where each woman lives, how what size shoe she takes and what her favourite food is?


    The smallest shoe is worn by either Vera or Yvette

    Xanthippe's closest Western neighbour is a pizza lover; she also has a friend to the West who takes size 7 shoes

    The Bristolian likes curry while Winifred prefers a dessert.

    Xanthippe lives to the East of the lady with the largest feet, but this is not Zelda or Winifred (Yvette's neighbour-but-one to the East)

    Vera lives in Oxford; the Welsh lady* likes cake.

    Zelda's feet are only just bigger that Yvette's but only just smaller than the lady who likes pasta"

    oh and btw Cardiff is in Wales. And the order from west to east is as follows

    Cardiff - Bristol - Bath - Oxford - London

    here are my answers
    Vera
    Oxford
    Pizza
    8

    Winifred
    Bath
    Sorbet
    7

    Xanthippe
    London
    Pasta
    6

    Zelida
    Bristol
    Curry
    5

    Yuette
    Cardiff
    Cake
    4

    Thank you for your time
