# Flying Teams

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.

so..

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.
