Post Who Works Where?

Alex, Betty, Carol, Dan, Earl, Fay, George and Harry are eight employees of an organization

They work in three departments: Personnel, Administration and Marketing with not more than three of them in any department.

Each of them has a different choice of sports from Football, Cricket, Volleyball, Badminton, Lawn Tennis, Basketball, Hockey and Table Tennis not necessarily in the same order.

1.Dan works in Administration and does not like either Football or Cricket.

2.Fay works in Personnel with only Alex who likes Table Tennis.

3.Earl and Harry do not work in the same department as Dan.

4.Carol likes Hockey and does not work in Marketing.

5.George does not work in Administration and does not like either Cricket or Badminton.

6.One of those who work in Administration likes Football.

7.The one who likes Volleyball works in Personnel.

8.None of those who work in Administration likes either Badminton or Lawn Tennis.

9.Harry does not like Cricket.

Who are the employees who work in the Administration Department?

In which Department does Earl work?

Dan, Carol, and Betty in Admin while Earl works in marketing. I'm curious why the sports were included if they're not part of the answer.

I noticed that too, digited. In addition, clues 6-9 are irrelevant. I guess some puzzles are more about what's not important than what is.

Alex - Personnel - Table Tennis
Betty - Admin. - Football
Carol - Admin - Hockey
Dan - Admin - Basketball
Earl - Marketing - Cricket
Fay - Personnel - Volleyball
George - Marketing - Tennis
Harry - Marketing - Badminton

The clues allow you to find out everyones departments and favourite sports so I don't know why the question only asks about where they work.

Thumbs up Useless Clues !

No doubt that the question asked in the end makes those clues 6 to 9 absolutely useless. Though not asked here but finding the favorite sport of each employee could be challenging task!
