Five young ladies (Liz, Marge, Sam, Ella and Jenny) went on five different hiking adventures. Each walked a distance of 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 kilometers (random order). Each were able to take an extraordinary wildlife photograph in different locations (forest, meadow, mountain, river side and bushes) of different animals (rabbit, bird, deer, fox and bear cubs). From the clues below determine where and of what each girl took a photograph of, and the distance each travelled.

1. Liz walked twice as far as the girl who saw the deer. The girl who got a shot of the fox travelled one kilometer less than Jenny. The girl in the bushes was not the one who walked 5 kilometers. The girl on the riverside walked either one kilometer more or less than the one who was in the bushes.

2. The girl who was quick enough to capture the rabbit on film walked farther than Marge, but not as far as the one who got the bear cubs. The girl who hiked up the mountain walked farther than at least one other girl, but not the farthest. Either Ella or Sam walked more than one kilometer farther than the other. Sam did not get a picture of the bird. The mountain climber walked either one kilometer more or less than Marge.

3. The meadow explorer was not the one to take a picture of the bird. The bear cubs and the fox were not captured in the forest. Ella hiked farther than the mountain climber. The girl in the meadow walked one kilometer more or less than the mountain climber.

4. The girl on the riverside walked two kilometers more than the one who saw the fox. The deer photographer did not hike as far as Ella, nor as far as the meadow explorer. At least one traveller walked farther than Jenny. The girl in the bushes walked either one kilometer more or less than the rabbit photographer.


Solution:

Liz - 6 km, rabbit, riverside
Marge - 4 km, fox, meadow
Sam - 3km, deer, forest
Ella - 7 km, bear cubs, bushes
Jenny - 5 km, bird, mountain
