Put It Together

Thinking Games
Try your skill at finding the answers to the puzzles.

Exercises
In the questions below, try to find the answers by using logic grid tables. Each table starts with blank boxes. Put an X in the boxes that you know are not true. Put an O in the boxes that might be true for that clue. Since each answer can only be used once in any given puzzle, you can X the other answers in that category.

Continue doing this for every clue you're given. You should be able to figure out the answers for each puzzle.
