Or the Zebra?

There are 5 houses of 5 different colours.  In each house lives a person of a different nationality.  Each of the 5 residents drinks a certain type of beverage, smokes a certain brand of cigar, and keeps a certain pet.  None of them have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar or drink the same beverage.


The question is:    Who owns the fish?



  ► The Brit lives in the red house. 

► The Swede keeps dogs as pets.

► The Dane drinks tea.

► The green house is on the left of the white house.

► The resident of the green house drinks coffee.

► The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.

► The resident of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.

► The resident of the centre house drinks milk.

► The Norwegian lives in the first house.

► The person who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.

► The person who keeps the horse lives next to the one who smokes Dunhill.

► The person who smokes Bluemasters drinks beer.

► The German smokes Prince.

► The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.

► The person who smokes Blends has a neighbour who drinks water.
