Brain Game: I Heart Huxtables
At the Huxtable household, Valentine's Day is a special day. Mother Claire kicks off the holiday a week early byÂ secretly assigningÂ each of her five children the job of sending a valentine card toÂ one other sibling. She makes the assignments herself, but asks the kids to keepÂ quietÂ until the five cardsÂ are delivered. SheÂ even takes the time to ensure that the sender ofÂ each card doesn't receive a card from that same sibling. What a mom, huh?
Anyway, you probably know the names of theÂ Huxtable brood. Sondra is the oldest, followed by Denise, Theo, Vanessa, and little Rudy. Given the above information and these three clues, can you determine the senders and recipients of each of the five valentine cards?
1. Theo sentÂ his valentine to a sibling older than he.
2. Sondra's valentine went to one of the two youngest Huxtables.
3. Denise, who did not send aÂ valentine to Vanessa, thanked Rudy for hers.
Here is the SOLUTION.
