At the Huxtable household, Valentine's Day is a special day. Mother Claire kicks off the holiday a week early by secretly assigning each of her five children the job of sending a valentine card to one other sibling. She makes the assignments herself, but asks the kids to keep quiet until the five cards are delivered. She even takes the time to ensure that the sender of each card doesn't receive a card from that same sibling. What a mom, huh?

Anyway, you probably know the names of the 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 sent 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 a valentine to Vanessa, thanked Rudy for hers.

Here is the SOLUTION.
