Ohh, this.

I was given this before, when I was in Year 7 during Home Ec class and on the last day of school, I remember.

Really fun riddle, gotta pinpoint each fact one by one until the whole picture forms.

i got it i think...

YELLOW
NORWEGIAN
FOX
KOOLS
WATER

BLUE
UKRANIAN
HORSE
CHESTERFIELD
TEA

RED
ENGLISHMAN
SNAILS
OLD GOLD
MILK

IVORY
SPANISH
DOG
LUCKY STRIKE
ORANGE JUICE

GREEN
JAPANESE
ZEBRA
PARLIAMENTS
COFFEE

Thats the only way which worked for me, it was the japanese with the parliaments which finally sussed it for me. So its the Norwegian who drinks the water, and the japanese who keeps the zebra.

Ad

Woops, corrected now.

This is missing the rules! It's a reworking of Einsteins's puzzle, but it does not come with the stipulations concerning nationalities and houses etc.
