Need help to solve this Puzzle ?

There are seven friends -B, S, R, M G, Y and K each of them aspires to become something. Each of them likes different colours viz. Blue, Yellow, Green, Violet, Maroon, Black and Red not necessarily in the same order. Each of them wants become Lawyer, Doctor, Engineer, Actor, Pilot, Army Chief and Cricketer not necessarily in the same order.

G likes violet colour and wants to become a Doctor. R likes yellow color and wants to become cricketer. K does not like black colour and does not want to become an Engineer. The person who likes Maroon color, wants to become an Actor while the person who wants to be pilot, likes blue color. B likes red color but Y does not like green or black colour and he does not want to become an Actor. M wants to become a lawyer. S does not want to become an Engineer or an Army Chief.

Hi JPSingh

Unless I've missed something there seem to be 7 friends, 7 colours and 7 professions.

But in the first two sentences it gives you two of the answers straight away! Reducing it to 5 friends, 5 colours and 5 professions.

I would then draw up a grid and solve in the normal manor

Yes, you are right and also 2 other clues which are straight forward, but then the twist starts. Why dont you give it a try.

Here is what i have got:

B- Red - xxxxxxx
S- xxxxx -xxxxxxx
R-Yellow- Cricketer
M-xxxxxx- Lawyer
G- Violet- Doctor
Y- xxxxxxx -xxxxxxx
K- xxxxxxx - xxxxxxx

Maroon - Actor
Blue - Pilot

*S dont want to become Army and Engineer
*Y dont want to become Actor and dont like Green and Black
*K dont want to become Engineer and dont like Black

Bearing this in mind, the puzzle is then solvable viz:

B red engineer
S maroon actor
M black lawyer
Y blue pilot
K green army chief

Geecee is correct.

this puzzle was able to be solved by cross referencing data through the grid.

I have seen links posted to a tutorial on how to solve these puzzles I will try and post the link.
