Default Einstein's puzzle - Try solving this !

Guys, this one was supposedly wrote by Einstein himself....hehe. It's also said he believed 98% of the world could not figure it out. Whatever, it's very interesting!

1. There are 5 houses in five different colors.

2. In each house lives a person with a different nationality.

3. These 5 owners drink a certain drink, smoke a certain brand of tobacco and keep a certain pet.

4. No owners have the same pet, smoke the same tobacco, or drink the same drink.

THE BIG QUESTION IS -

WHO OWNS THE FISH?

Clues -

01. The Brit lives in the red house
02. The Swede keeps dogs as pets
03. The Dane drinks tea
04. The green house is adjacent on the left of the white house
05. The green house owner drinks coffee
06. The person who smokes Pall Mall raises birds
07. The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill
08. The man living in the house right in the center drinks milk
09. The Norwegian lives in the first house
10. The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats
11. The man who keeps horses lives next to the one who smokes Dunhill
12. The owner who smokes Bluemaster drinks juice
13. The German smokes Prince
14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house
15. The man who smokes Blend has a neighbor who drinks water

Happy solving!

Manti.

i guess in the present day scenario Einstein needs to re-calculate those 98% and 2%!.. it could be more like 49-51!... so which one is the elite?

Damn Maniac!!! I was one line away from solving it. Got the last trhee right, was working on the first 2 houses.

U guys got any more off these. It's damn good.

For all you know. Einstein must have written the lines first and then come up with those tricky questions. LOL
