Martians don’t need to develop airplanes as a means
of moving through the air. Most feathered Martians can
fly easily. Every few lunars, feathered Martians from
the various groups participate in a tournament to determine
which are the best fliers of the planet.
This lunar, teams of two feathered Martians from
three groups are competing:
1. One team is from the Uti, one from the Grundi,
and one from the Yomi.
2. Each team is made up of one female and one male.
3. The female participants are Xera, Wora, and Teta.
4. The males are called Vel, Pyi, and Rir.
5. Despite her daring feats in the air, Teta had never
been away from home before the contest.
6. Xera and Rir had never met before the tournament.
7. Xera will be visiting Pyi’s group when the Yomi go
on a special excursion to that part of the planet.
8. Pyi admires Teta’s colorful feathers, as well as her
ability to soar, and once watched her and her teammate
in the territory of the Grundi.
If the winners are members of the Uti group, what
are the names of the best fliers?
From: 6. Xera and Rir had never met before the tournament.
We know that these 2 are not from the same group.
From: 7. Xera will be visiting Pyi’s group when the Yomi go on a special excursion to that part of the planet.
We know that Xera is not part of the yomi, Pyi is.
From: 8. Pyi admires Teta’s colorful feathers, as well as her ability to soar, and once watched her and her teammate in the territory of the Grundi.
We know that Pyi is a yomi, so Teta cannot be. Teta is a Grundi bc she was in that territory and has never left home before now.
Xera and Rir in diff group
Xera is not yomi
Pyi is yomi
Teta is grundi
thus Xera = Uti, Wora = yomi, teta = grundi
because Xera is not yomi and teta is already the grundi, so xera must be uti.
Now Pyi = yomi, Rir = grundi, vel = uti
because rir cannot be in the same group as Xera, and Pyi has already been named the yomi. Thus, vel is the uti.
The names of the Uti and the winners are:
Xera and Vel.
