Deductive Reasoning

A lunch has been left on the counter.  Feeling like a nice mom today, I decide to drive it over to the school and drop it off.  But who made this lunch?  Let's examine the lunch and the facts:

The Lunch:

  • packed in a brown paper bag
  • fruit cup and plastic spoon
  • creamy peanut butter sandwich with jelly, cut in half
  • chewy bar
  • forgot to pack the fresh homemade cookies!
The Facts:
  • Kids A & B prefer crunchy peanut butter
  • Kids A & B like fruit cups, C not so much
  • Kid B never cuts his sandwich in half
  • Kid C usually doesn't make a sandwich
  • Kid C doesn't like jelly on peanut butter
  • Kid A sometimes uses her own insulated lunch bag
  • Kids B and C always use brown paper bags for lunches
  • Kid C thinks of her sweet tooth before anything else
  • Kid B gets distracted while doing things
  • Kid C is always running late in the morning and tries to do 3 things at once
  • Kid A had her hands full in the morning with bookbag, alto saxophone *and* tenor saxophone
So who did I deliver the lunch to?  And who did it really belong to?  Answer to come tomorrow.
