Logic Problem Solution:
The Soft Drink Drawing

From the introduction, big brother Damien got the fifth and last can of soda from the refrigerator. Damien did not get the Grape Nehi (2). By clue 6, then, where three sodas were distributed in consecutive order the A & W Root Beer, the one to Courtney, and the Grape Nehi, the three were either 1-3 or 2-4 out of the refrigerator. Since Ryan got his soft drink immediately after a sibling got the Squirt (3) and Ryan didn't get the A & W Root Beer (1), the Squirt went to Courtney and Ryan got the Grape Nehi. Neither Travis nor Xandra ended up with the 7-Up (4), so Damien got that fifth. If the A & W Root Beer had been picked first, the Squirt to Courtney second, and the Grape Nehi to Ryan third, the Sunkist Orange would have been fourth out of the refrigerator--no (5). So, the A & W Root Beer was second, the Squirt to Courtney was third, and the Grape Nehi to Ryan was fourth. The first soft drink picked by Damien was the Sunkist Orange. By clue 7, the Sunkist Orange went to Travis, and Xandra got the A & W Root Beer. The last five soft drinks were distributed

• 1st - Travis, Sunkist Orange
• 2nd - Xandra, A & W Root Beer
• 3rd - Courtney, Squirt
• 4th - Ryan, Grape Nehi
• 5th - Damien, 7-Up
