Albert Einstein's Intelligence Test. Let's See What You Got!

Nearly a century ago, Albert Einstein devised a very difficult intelligence test. The famous scientist claimed that only 2% of people could solve it.

Why? Because the clues were difficult to follow and decipher.

Albert Einstein's intelligence test actually relies on orderly thinking, logic, and a lot of patience.

If you fail the test it doesn't necessarily mean you're not intelligent, it just means you're more scattered in your thinking, or you lose your patience more easily than the ones who pass it.

Solving Albert Einstein's Intelligence Test

Isn't this test fun yet extremely complex? The wager of its creator, Albert Einstein, was that 98% of people could not answer the question at the end of the test correctly.

If you haven't taken Albert Einstein's intelligence test yet, before reading the answers you can test your logic and patience here.

Now let's see if you answered the question "Who is the owner of the fish tank?" correctly.

By following the logic of the data above we have:

1. The Norwegian lives in the first house, which is yellow, smokes Dunhill, drinks water, and has a cat.

2. Next to him lives the Dane in a blue house, he smokes Marlboros, drinks tea, and owns a horse as his pet.

3. The third house, the red one, belongs to the British, who is a milk drinker and a Pall Mall smoker. And his pet is a bird.

4. Next to him lives the German, in a green house, who drinks coffee and smokes Rothmans, and is the owner of the fish tank.

5. Because in the last house, the white one, lives the Swede, together with a dog, the man being a Winfield beer and cigarette drinker.

Putting these facts together, Albert Einstein's intelligence test has a solution.

The owner of the fish tank is the German who lives in the fourth house, the green one.

Congratulations to those who got the answer right!
