Parents buy cookies for their kids. They are saving money so they buy two discounted ones (few days after best before). They don’t want to look greedy so they also buy two cookies for the full price.
When they come home their two kids grab cookies, and each get two. They don’t check best before so their choice is random.
Do you think that life is fair and each kid gets one expired and one good cookie? Or one kid gets both expired? What is more likely to happen?

One summer, five couples went on a cruise together for their vacations. The trip lasted for a week and the couples spent most of their time together. Each morning they would meet for breakfast and decide what to do for the day. On the fourth morning however, the ship stopped at a tropical island resort and the couples discovered that everyone wanted to do something different. At length, they decided to split up for the day and meet back on the ship for supper to share their adventures with each other. Being tourists, each couple gave into their urge to bring back a souvenir and by luck, they all brought back something different. Using the clues and the grid below, determine the first and last names of each couple, what they did for the day, and what souvenir they brought back.
 The couple who went scuba diving didn’t buy the homemade candies but loved what Bob and Judy bought.
 Jake, whose last name isn’t Horner, was disappointed by his golfing scores. Peter, who isn’t married to Tracy, wanted to go sight seeing with Bob Gallop but he went surfing with his wife instead.
 Each couple is represented by the following: Mr. and Mrs. Peel, homemade candies, Cindy, Bob, golfing.
 Mike is not Tracy’s husband and Jane is not Ed’s wife. Ed didn’t go hiking.
 The couple who went site seeing bought a beautifully carved wood dolphin at one of the local attractions. The dolphin and Sarah’s model ship were voted the best of the souvenirs.
 Ed, who is not married to Cindy, liked the shirts that Jake Bremmer bought. Mike, whose last name is not Elmwood, bought the postcards.

They each spent under one dollar and they each bought a different amount of their favorite candy.
