Volleyball is not Tuna or Spagetti
and finally, Tuna is not Spagetti
I find this easy, but, am I missing anything? I'm not "sub" genius for nothing.
In this context, no. However, if person A and B can both only
be Tuna/Red, that means person C,D,E have to be Baseball, Volleyball, and Spaghetti. Deductive reasoning causes C,D,E to be those three because if A is red, B is tuna, and vice versa.
Personally, I copy the clue into the notes and put the persons name beside each of the things they are eligible.
