Assignment

On a certain train the staff consisted of the guard, the ticket-checker and the driver. Their names listed alphabetically are Joshi, Rao and Shah. Also are traveling three passengers on the train with names Mr. Joshi, Mr. Rao and Mr. Shah. The following facts are known:

  • Mr. Rao lives in Delhi
  • The guard lives halfway between Chandigarh and Delhi
  • Mr. Joshi earns exactly Rs. 200,000 a year.
  • Shah once beat the ticket-checker in snooker.
  • The guard’s next-door neighbor, one of the three passengers mentioned, earns exactly three times as much as the guard.
  • The passenger living in Chandigarh has the same name as the guard.

What is the driver’s name?


Let us fill in the grid below:

 

 

Joshi

Rao

Shah

Delhi

Wrong

Correct

Wrong

Mid-way

Chandigarh

 

Wrong

 

 

From statement 1 we can grid in the following. Once we know that Mr Rao lives in Delhi, we also know that none of the other Misters can live in Delhi and also that Mr Rao can only live in one city – so he does not live in Chandigarh or Midway. We put crosses on the cells that are not possible.
 

Rest please try it by youself.
