Default Can you solve this???

Got this off another board, pretty challenging riddle. Give it a go! The legit way, no google. I nailed it in about half an hour. Feelsgoodman...


ALBERT EINSTEIN'S RIDDLE

ARE YOU IN THE TOP 2% OF INTELLIGENT PEOPLE IN THE WORLD? SOLVE THE RIDDLE AND FIND OUT.

There are no tricks, just pure logic, so good luck and don't give up.

1. In a street there are five houses, painted five different colours.
2. In each house lives a person of different nationality
3. These five homeowners each drink a different kind of beverage, smoke different brand of cigar and keep a different pet.

THE QUESTION: WHO OWNS THE FISH?

HINTS

1. The Brit lives in a red house.
2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
3. The Dane drinks tea.
4. The Green house is next to, and on the left of the White house.
5. The owner of the Green house drinks coffee.
6. The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
7. The owner of the Yellow house smokes Dunhill.
8. The man living in the centre house drinks milk.
9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
10. The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
11. The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
12. The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.
13. The German smokes Prince.
14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
15. The man who smokes Blends has a neighbour who drinks water.

I say at least 80% of the people would be able to solve them if you show them a good method to solve things like that. It doesn't require much intelligence, just a structured approach...

edit: I take that back and say 64%

Ahh the usual logician stuff. I'm not sure I want it. But where you get 2% from? Bullshit.

Solved it with an excel grid of the clues. About 20 minutes too.
Interesting, not particularly challenging just requires a little thought and time.
