Eight Students G,H,I,K,L,N,O,R

six will give reports on 3 consecutive days, monday/tues/wed. One in the Morning, One in the afternoon.

Rules:

Tuesday is the only day on which george can give a report

Neither O nor R can give an afternoon report

If N gives a report then on the next day Helen and Irving must give reports, unless Nina's report is given on Wednesday.

====

Question:

If G, N, and R give reports and they do so on different days from one another which one of the following could be true?

A (correct answer) : Helen gives a report on wed
E (my answer): Robert gives a report on Wed

my hypothetical:

Morning: O/R L R/O
Afternoon: I G N

why cant robert give a report on wed?

If Robert gives a report on Wednesday, N must give a report on Monday. If N gives a report on Monday, H and I must do so on Tuesday which leaves no room for G since G can only give a report on Tuesday.

Something like that....

The problem is your hypothetical I think. Per the question, N can only go on Wednesday and R on Monday morning with G on Tuesday.
