Question 54 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the magic number”

24th September 2009 by Pete

Our work is nearly done for the day. All that’s left is question 54, which also includes question 54.5. Read on, and all will make sense….


Domicile03, Guin’s Favorite

When the mice got here they were pretty excited by the variety of fauna on the islands, like so many people are. They were completely overlooking the beauty of the rocks themselves of course, but I can forgive that. To be honest, even I have my favorite animal here. And, as expected, Ray, Sam, and Nick each picked a favorite animal too.

The animals we picked, in order of increasing size, were: the frigatebird, the land iguana, the seal, and the tortoise.

Ray’s favorite animal is smaller than Nick’s.
My favorite animal is bigger than Ray’s.
Sam’s favorite animal is bigger than Nick’s.
My favorite animal is smaller than Nick’s.

QUESTION: What are Ray, Sam, Nick, and Guin’s favorite animals?

BONUS QUESTION: This one is tricky! For yesterday’s unclaimed prize–guess where Guin lives!


Two for the price of one – good luck!
