Henri delivers flowers for a local florist. One lovely day, he left the windows open on the delivery van and the cards all blew off the bouquets. He has to figure out who gets which flowers. He has five bouquets, each of which has only one kind of flower: daisies, roses, carnations, iris, and gladioli.

- d. The Whippets cannot be in Jersey, Hudson, or Fulton, since they have beaten those teams. The Antelopes are in Groton, so the Whippets are in Ivy.
- e. The Panthers cannot be in Ivy or Groton, because the Whippets and Antelopes are there. Fulton has beaten the Panthers, so they cannot be in Fulton. Fulton has also beaten the Kangaroos, so the only town left for the Kangaroos is Jersey. That leaves Hudson for the Panthers.
- b. Every team and town is matched up, except Fulton and the Gazelles, so the Gazelles must be in Fulton.
- a. Kevin is allergic to daisies and iris; he's not getting gladioli because it's not his housewarming. The roses are going to Jenny, leaving the carnations for Kevin.
- d. Jenny is getting roses and Kevin is getting carnations. Neither Liz nor Inez would be getting a housewarming present. Michael is getting gladioli.
- e. The only flowers unassigned are iris and daisies. Liz is allergic to daisies, so she is getting the iris.

Last Stand got more rain than Olliopolis, so it cannot be the city with the least rain; also, Mile City cannot be the city with the least rain. Olliopolis got 44 inches of rain. Therefore, Polberg is in the desert and got 12 inches of rain.
- a. Olliopolis got 44 inches of rain. Last Stand got more rain than that, so it got 65 inches, which is the most.
- b. Olliopolis got 44 inches of rain, Last Stand got 65, and Polberg got 12. New Town is in the mountains, and the city in the mountains got 32 inches of rain. Therefore, Mile City got 27.
