What did you order?


Five bachelors who all lived in the same apartment building each ordered an item from the same catalog. Unfortunately, the shippers got confused and each item was delivered to the wrong apartment. Can you determine each man’s full name, what each man ordered and what was actually delivered, and which apartment each man lived in.

  1. Roger, who doesn’t live in an end apartment, ordered the Television set. Tom lived next door to the man who received the dishware.
  2. Mr. Weiseman, who didn’t receive the automotive tools, lives two apartments from the man who ordered the downhill skis and one apartment from Harry.
  3. Ed, whose last name isn’t Smith, lives in apartment #3 but he didn’t receive the automotive tools. Mr. Smith, who doesn’t live in apartment #4, ordered the golf clubs but he received the item that Mr. Campbell ordered, which wasn’t downhill skis.
  4. The bachelor in apartment #1, which isn’t Tom, ordered what Al received. The man in apartment #2, who didn’t receive the golf clubs, lives next door to where what he ordered was delivered.
  5. Mr. Bates didn’t order the downhill skis. The television set was not delivered to Ed’s apartment.
  6. Tom lives in apartment #5.
