I hope i'm "makeing" sense ------------------

The white house can't be house 1, because we know the green house is to the left of it and house 1 has none to the left of it. It can't be the second house because of clues 9 and 14 making that the blue house. It can't be house 3 because the blue one is to the left not the green one. that leaves house 4 or 5 as the only options. Since green drinks coffee, it can't be house 3 since "center house drinks milk." Therefore, green has to be house 4 and white house 5.

If you break down the clues, you find out that the Norwegian neither drinks coffe or lives in a green house. The German cannot live in the yellow, blue or red houses, so maybe 4 and five are the German and the Swede. Not that I know. (I do. I solved it correctly). P.S: All smart people: go to www.mensa.com and do the test to see how likely you would be to qualify to join the most intelligent organisation in the world! Oh, and i am Australian and, no, my neighbour is not miles away. He is about 10 meters away. Just to clear it up. And, despite what television or others will have you beleive, 'aussie' is pronounced 'oz - e'
