    Exclamation dive logic

    Every year Sue and four other divers meet in Bali for at least a week of diving. On a recent visit the five all from different places(one is from Eugene) arrived in Bali at different times. Each wore a different dive related t-shirt and each person has a unique nickname. From this information and the following clues, determine what order they arrived, their first names, nicknames, who wore what t-shirt, and hometown NOTE: nicknames appear in quotes.

    1. The Boston diver arrived just before the one wearing the Scuba Toys t-shirt. Kate arrived right after "Squid" did.(Four different people are mentioned in this clue)

    2. The man who wore the Dive Carins t-shirt didn't arrive fourth.

    3. Chuck arrived just before "Nemo" who arrived right before the person wearing the Grateful Diver t-shirt.

    4. The five divers are: Tom, "Bones", the one who arrived last, the Boulder resident, and the one who wore the Aggressor t-shirt.

    5. Neither the man called "Sharky"(who wasn't first) nor Kate wore the Galapagos t-shirt.

    6 "Chinacat" (who isn't from Phoenix) arrived after Mark but not right after Mark, who arrived sometime after the Atlanta diver.


    Please don't post the answer. Send me a PM with your solution. I'll post the solution and the first person with the correct answer on Tuesday afternoon.
    If you get confused listen to the music play.

    I'm still waiting for the first correct answer. So far one wrong answer was submitted.

    I spent two hours looking at this and got nowhere.
    You thought about how you could, but you didn't think about if you should.

    These puzzles are generally matrices, and there's enough information given to narrow the choices in one column down to one. But I'm with the poster above me; I spent more time than I should have on this today, and I wonder if enough information is given.

    I'd give you all a hint but since alot of people won't see this until Monday I don't want to spoil it for them. It is solvable with the info provided. Making up a table should lead to a solution.

    I'd be happy to send the solution to somebody and they can verify it is derived from the info given. The only stipulation being that once they verify it that they post that the puzzle is solvable from the info given.

    Any takers?

    It should take less then 10 mins to verify.

    Chinacat:

    I used to love doing these types of puzzles and did many of them for entertainment. I worked on this puzzle quite a bit last evening. I got no where. They are not that easy to put together and very easy to miss a critical clue on.

    I'd like to see your solution to try and verify it.
