    Einstein Riddle Variant

    There are five houses in five different colors. In each house lives a person with a different nationality. The owner drinks a certain beverage, eats a certain candy, and keep a certain pet. No owners have the same pet, eat the same candy, or drink the same beverage.


    The question is: Who owns the fish?

    Hints:

    The Brit lives in a red house
    The Saudi keeps dogs as pets
    The Canadian drinks tea
    The green house is on the left of the white house
    The green homeowner drinks coffee
    The person who eats snickers owns birds
    The owner of the yellow house eats twix
    The person living in the center house drinks milk
    The South African lives in the first house
    The person who eats twizzlers lives next to the one who keeps cats
    The person who keeps the horse lives next to the person who eats twix
    The owner who eats M&Ms drinks pop
    The Korean eats chunky
    The South African lives net to the blue house
    The person who eats twizzlers has a neighbor who drinks water

    (Also who lives in what color house, eats what, drinks what, and keeps what pet)
