A statistic shows that only 2% of the people can solve perhaps the most famous intelligence test of all time. Nearly a century ago, the famous scientist Albert Einstein designed this test to get away from the wave of students who wanted him to be their mentor and guide. Solving it should take between 15 and 20 minutes. So let’s see it!

2. In each house lives a person, each of different nationality.
3. Each tenant likes a certain drink, smoke a certain brand of cigarettes and holds a particular pet.
4. None of the five people drinks the same drink, smokes the same brand of cigarettes, and doesn’t have the same pet.
