Default The "FIVE"

Hi!

Recently I have been spending a lot of time solving the more difficult puzzles with no positives, or true statements like, "Mary lives on Oak Street" I found that the "five clues were very helpful in solving these puzzles, because you could use the process of elimination to determine the answers. If it weren't for the "five', I would have had a more difficult time.

I have been getting more of these puzzles than usual, am I the only one?

Default yes it does.

The "five people are" makes a HUGE difference in solving the logic problem. by giving that, it tells you who's who! for example, if you have "the five people are the wolfman, the one who left on tuesday, the one who drinks diet coke, kate, and the cheddar enthusiast." that tells you that the wolfman, for example, is NOT the one who left on tuesday, NOT the one who drinks diet coke, NOT kate, and NOT the cheddar enthusiast because those spots are already people in thier own right. HOPE THIS HELPS!!!
