School Teacher riddle
Mr. Dutch, Mr. English, Mr. Painter, and Mr. Writer are all teachers at the same school. Each teacher teaches two different subjects. Furthermore:
three teachers teach Dutch language;
there is only one maths teacher;
there are two teachers for chemistry;
two teachers, Simon and Mr. English, teach history;
Peter does not teach Dutch language;
Steven is chemistry teacher;
Mr. Dutch does not teach any course that is taught by Karl or Mr. Painter.
What is the full name of each teacher and which two subjects does each one teach?
There are 3 Dutch teachers but Peter isn’t one of them.
So Karl, Simon and Steven teach Dutch.
Mr. Dutch doesn’t teach Dutch because Karl does.
So Peter is Mr. Dutch.
Mr. English teaches history and his name isn’t Simon.
Steven teaches Dutch and chemistry so he isn’t Mr. English.
The only one left is Karl, so Karl is Mr. English and he teaches Dutch and history.
Which means that Peter Dutch teaches maths and chemistry.
Mr. Painter doesn’t teach maths or chemistry (Mr. Dutch) so he can’t be Steven and must be Simon.
Which leaves Steven to be Mr. Writer.
Simon Painter teaches Dutch and history
Peter Dutch teaches maths and chemistry
Steven Writer teaches Dutch and chemistry
Karl English teaches Dutch and history
