Sam works in a convenience store off the highway on weeknights. Generally, Tuesday nights are pretty slow and Sam has plenty of time to read. Tonight however, heíd had a steady flow of customers since his shift started four hours ago. He suddenly realized that his last five customers had been a bit odd too. Usually, he got lots of people stopping for coffee or some other drink while they were on the road. Some would get munchies to go with the drinks. Locals would stop by for the paper or lottery tickets. His last five customers had all bought one drink and one bag of chips. The strange part was that each had bought a different drink but the same type of chips... but each also had a different flavor of the chips. Thinking back, he also realized that each had driven a different type of car in a different color. Knowing how common black, red, and white cars are, that in itself was very odd. Shaking his head, he shrugged and picked up his book again. Maybe this time heíd get more than a few minutes to read... Determine the color (one was green) and type of each car (one was a Chevrolet) used by Samís last five customers, the kind of drink each bought, and the flavor of chips each bought.
1. The guy in the yellow Toyota didnít buy the sour cream & onion chips. The lady who bought the Dr. Pepper drove a black car.
2. The woman who bought the salt & vinegar chips drove a blue car. The Mercedes driver didnít get the ginger ale.
3. The one who bought the Pepsi didnít drive a Toyota but she did buy the barbecue chips.
4. The one who bought the ginger ale didnít drive a red Lexus.
5. The one who drove the Saturn, which wasnít blue, bought a can of Crush but not the plain chips.
6. The guy who bought the Coke also bought ranch chips.
