    Help with deductive reasoning puzzle.

    I need to make a deductive reasoning puzzle that has 5 people, 5 objects/places, and another 5 objects/places. It has to have 8 clue and you have to be required to use all of the clues to solve it. Can someone give me an Idea or an example? I have no idea where to start.

    Re: Help with deductive reasoning puzzle.

    I would expect that this is pretty laborious because it requires a lot of trial-and-error reasoning. Off the top of my head, I am not aware of a systematic way of producing such puzzles. For a couple of examples (not necessarily with the given number of categories and hints), see Wikipedia and this forum. If you have more than 8 hints, you could cheat by joining them using "and."

    This is not a geometry problem.

    Thanks. I think that will help a lot. I am sorry the only reason I posted this in the geometry sub-forum is because it is in my geometry class and I didn't know where else to post it.
