Logic Puzzle: Trouble-Prone Diplomats

Advertisements

Five alcoholic friends of the Prime Minister (one is Smith), each of whom prefers a different drink, were given various undesirable diplomatic postings to get them out of the country but managed to get into various kinds of trouble anyway.  From the clues given, match the man, his drink, his assigned country, and the trouble he was involved in.

1.  Brown, Patterson, and Doucette are, in some order, the one who went to Zimbabwe, the gin drinker, and the one who was involved in adultery.

2.  Either A or B is true, but not both:

   A.  The wine drinker went to Bangladesh.

   B.  The Scotch drinker had the staff revolt.

3.  Four different postings involved: offended hosts, Doucette, Tibet, and Scotch.

4.  The beer drinker committed adultery, but not in Paraguay.

5.  Brown does not drink Scotch, did not go to Burkina Faso, and was not the embezzler.

6.  In Bangladesh the hosts were offended, but not by Patterson or LeGrand.

7.  The visa scam happened in Zimbabwe, but without the vodka drinker.

8.  The embezzlement did not happen in Paraguay.

9.  The gin drinker went to Burkina Faso; the Scotch drinker did not go to Paraguay.
