Albert Einstein- Who Owns the Fish

Ok, so I saw this riddle from RunawayCat and stole it from there.

Well, what is so special with this riddle? There are tonnes of riddles everywhere...**yawns**

Apparently Albert Einstein wrote this riddle early during the 19th century and said that 98% of the world's population would not be able to solve it.

And yours truly thinks he solve it already... Woh, he is sure feeling very smart all of a sudden.

Lets go on with the riddle, shall we?


1. In a street there are five houses, painted five different colors.

2. In each house lives a person of different nationality.

3. These five homeowners each drink a different kind of beverage, smoke a different brand of cigar and keep a different pet.



1. The Brit lives in a red house.
2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
3. The Dane drinks tea.
4. The Green house is on the left of the White house.
5. The owner of the Green house drinks coffee.
6. The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
7. The owner of the Yellow house smokes Dunhill.
8. The man living in the center house drinks milk.
9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
10. The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
11. The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
12. The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.
13. The German smokes Prince.
14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
15. The man who smokes Blends has a neighbor who drinks water.

So, who owns the fish?
