Einstein's Riddle!

There are 5 houses in 5 different colors. In each house lives a person with a different nationality. The 5 owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet. No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar, or drink the same beverage.
The question is: Who owns the fish? Just to make sure you are not making any wild guessing, please include the nationality, color, beverage and brand of cigar. :thumbsup:

Hints:
  • The Brit lives in the red house.
  • The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
  • The Dane drinks tea.
  • The green house is on the left of the white house.
  • The green homeowner drinks coffee.
  • The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
  • The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
  • The man living in the center house drinks milk.
  • The Norwegian lives in the first house.
  • The man who smokes Blend lives next to the one who keeps cats.
  • The man who keeps the horse lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
  • The owner who smokes Bluemaster drinks beer.
  • The German smokes prince.
  • The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
  • The man who smokes Blend has a neighbor who drinks water.
Einstein wrote this riddle early during the 19th century. He said 98% of the world could not solve it. Its not hard, you just need to pay attention and be patient.

Kyle

Woah, nice riddles Djk. I didn't get the first one at all and gave up instantly (I'm 98% of people :thumbsup: ), but I got the second one after a while..
I've only just realised how stupid I am; and how obvious the answer is when you know it.
More, more, more!!

rookie147 - You are not stupid!

It's all a matter of perception and defining the information given to you.

Thanks Koan :thumbsup:
Hehe, maybe, I just lack the patience to try to work out complicated things like that; I just get bored/confused and give up.. :flowers:

Aye! Rookie147.

Just like the initial question posed in this thread,
has been bantered about for near 100 years, or more.
It's called question zero or puzzel zero.
It's a basic psych study question.
Enjoy!

Well, I know the answer to the first one by reading what graveangel said.. :thumbsup:
But I worked the second one out myself, although I won't post the answer, it may ruin the fun for someone else.
