LOGIC PUZZLE

THE AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM
by Evelyn B. Rosenthal

There are four groups in an after-school program that meets Mondays through Thursdays. Each group spends one period at painting, ceramics, nature study, or drama, and a second period at gym, swimming, or dancing. Except for gym, no two groups have any activity at the same time, and again, except for gym - each group has each activity no more than once during the four days. George, Sally, and two other children are in different groups. From the following clues, can you find each child's full name and activities on each day?

1. The two boys do not have gym on the same days.

2. May has painting and swimming on the day the Clarke boy has dance.

3. At least one child has painting later in the week than the Dunn child.

4. The Abbot boy has dance on Thursday, and the Burns girl has dance on Wednesday.

5. John has swimming on the same day as the Dunn child has dance.

6. Every child has gym on two nonconsecutive days, and art - either painting or ceramics - on two other nonconsecutive days.

7. May has drama earlier in the week than at least one of the others.

8. The Dunn child has painting on the same day the Abbot child has ceramics and nature study on the same day as the Burns child has ceramics.
