Question 2 Answer: Marty Jones.

We can rule out Fred from our investigations as he was the victim.

Brian Martin owns a green car. The thief owns a black car, so Brian Martin is not the murderer.

The suspect who owns a black car was wearing blue shoes.

The suspect who weighs 190 pounds was wearing blue shoes.

The suspect who weighs 190 pounds is not the one who has red hair. Therefore, one suspect was wearing blue shoes, owns a black car, weighs 190 pounds, and is not the one who has red hair.

But Bill Edison was wearing brown shoes, John Fox has red hair, Larry Smith weighs 210 pounds, and Brian Martin owns a green car.

Therefore, the only suspect who could be this suspect is Marty Jones.

Since this suspect, Marty Jones, owns a black car and the thief owns a black car, he is the thief.



Question 3

Freddie was in love - with three girls from his school! He couldn't decide which one he wanted to give his heart to so he sent all three a Valentine's card. But poor Freddie was out of luck - each girl thought the card came from someone else and Freddie was left on the sideline.

From the clues below, can you work out the name of each potential sweetheart, the colour of each card Freddie sent and the name of the boy each girl believed the card was sent by?

1. Unluckily for Freddie, when Miss Jetson received her card, she thought it was from Adam.

2. When Molly received her blue coloured card, she told Miss Hanson and together they worked out who the card was from. It didn't occur to either of them that it was from Freddie!

3. The girl who received the red card was convinced it came from Ethan.

4. Neither Millie nor Miss Motson received a pink card.

First Names: Lily, Millie, Molly
Last names: Hanson, Jetson, Motson
Colours: Blue, pink, red
Boys: Adam, Dylan, Ethan
