Logic Problem Solution:
With Six You get Egg Roll ...

From the introduction, each of the six diners enjoyed one appetizer. Two of the friends are given in clue 1: Diane and Ms. Rice were seated next to each other and shared an order of fried wontons as their appetizers. Two other women are named in clue 6: Ms. Lamb and the woman who had Pepper Steak as her entree were seated next to each other and had shrimpy toast. By clue 12, Ms. Young and the friend who had Moo Goo Gai Pan as her main dish ordered egg drop and sweet and sour soup for appetizers, so they are the fifth and sixth diners to the four in clues 1 and 6. Further by clue 12, Ms. Young and the woman who chose Moo Goo Gai Pan were not seated next to each other at the table. The only possible arrangement that can work is that the two pairs of women in clues 1 and 6 cannot have been seated next to each other; Ms. Young and the woman who ordered Moo Goo Gai Pan then sat directly opposite each other and were flanked on each side by a woman from each pair given in clues 1 and 6. By clue 7, Ms. Young sat between Ms. Mein and the diner who selected Sweet and Sour Pork off the Dragon's menu. Since Ms. Lamb didn't have the Sweet and Sour Pork (10), in clues 1 and 6, Ms. Mein must have ordered the Pepper Steak and sat next to Ms. Young, so that Ms. Lamb was then seated between Ms. Mein and the woman who enjoyed Moo Goo Gai Pan. Again by clue 7, the woman who sat on the other side of Ms. Young from Ms. Mein ordered Sweet and Sour Pork. Diane didn't order the Sweet and Sour Pork (4). In clue 1, then, Ms. Rice ordered the Sweet and Sour Pork; and Diane sat between Ms. Rice and the diner who had the Moo Goo Gai Pan. By clue 5, Diane is Ms. Fortune, and Ms. Curry had the Moo Goo Gai Pan. Jennifer is Ms. Lamb (9). By clue 2, Monica sat between Anita and the woman who had the Hunan Beef; so Monica is Rice or Mein. If Monica were Rice, Diane Fortune would have eaten the Hunan Beef--no (5). Monica is Ms. Mein. Anita is Ms. Young, and Jennifer Lamb enjoyed the Hunan Beef (2). By clue 3, Heather was seated directly across from the one who chose Kung Pao Shrimp. Heather is Ms. Curry, and Anita had the Kung Pao Shrimp. By elimination, Ms. Rice is Kate, and Diane Fortune dined on General Tso's Chicken. Diane sat in the chair in front of the window (11), chair 1. Since Kate didn't have chair 2 (8), Heather did. Jennifer sat in chair 3, Monica in 4, Anita in 5, and Kate in 6. The six friends were seated around the table and chose Jade Dragon entrees as follows:

• 1 - Diane Fortune, General Tso's Chicken
• 2 - Heather Curry, Moo Goo Gai Pan
• 3 - Jennifer Lamb, Hunan Beef
• 4 - Monica Mein, Pepper Steak
• 5 - Anita Young, Kung Pao Shrimp
• 6 - Kate Rice, Sweet and Sour Pork
