Problem #2 – Logic Puzzle (From Dell Logic Puzzles, June 1996) B urt loves Indian food. Partly for this reason, he decided to spend his vacation in India. He visited five different Indian cities (Benares, Calcutta, Delhi, Madurai, and Trivandrum). In each city, Burt found a restaurant that prepared an exceptional version of a different Indian dish (aloo gobi, masala dosa, palak panir, sambir, and tandoori chicken). Can you find the order in which Burt visited the cities, and the exceptional dish he found in each?
Problem #2 (cont'd) In between Calcutta and the city in which Burt enjoyed the tandoori chicken (in one order or the other) Burt visited either one or two other cities. Immediately after visiting Delhi, Burt visited the city where he had the aloo gobi, from which he traveled directly to the city where he had an exquisite dish of palak panir. He visited Benares, then two more cities, and then arrived the place where he discovered the astounding sambar. While visiting Trivandrum, Burt had the best masala dosa he'd ever tasted.
