# Ice Cream Seller Mystery?

83 views

On occasion of Diwali (a Hindu festival), the local ice cream seller is selling ice cream at an 80% discount. But, he got just two flavors, vanilla and cocoa-chipped. He is selling vanilla at Rs 1 and Choco-chip at Rs 2. However, he is giving just one ice cream to each person.
Shruti went to the shop and give the seller Rs.2 and without asking her the seller gives her Choco-chip ice cream. Next, Anmol comes and also gave the seller the same amount i.e. Rs 2. Now the seller asks Anmol which ice-cream does he wants.

Why such a different behavior towards Shruti and Anmol?

Thanks for the puzzle.

Shruti gave two coins worth 1 rupee each to the shopkeeper. So it was obvious she wanted a choco - chip ice cream. Otherwise she would have paid one Re. 1 coin only. Whereas, Anmol paid a coin of Rs. 2 to the vendor. That is why the vendor asked Anmol which ice cream he wanted.

Thanks very much. Appreciated and reciprocated.

A small town is visited by an ice-cream truck every day. On the first day of February, the truck visits as usual and 5 children, one from each of the first 5 houses on the street buys an ice cream that is of the different flavor from each other along with a completely different topping.

Go through the details below and find out which child lives in which house and bought which ice-cream flavor with which topping:

1. Jim lives between the child who bought the Raspberry topping and the child who bought mango ice cream.

2. Joyce, whose house has an even number, bought the cherry topping. Nancy does not live next to Joyce.

3. The blackcurrant ice cream had no topping.

4. The child who lives in house number 2 had the butterscotch ice cream. The child in house number 3 did not have chocolate ice cream.

5. Mike had banana ice cream. He hates banana cherry.

6. The child who had the cashew topping lives in house number 5. Dustin does not live in house number 4.

Please note that the odd numbered houses and the even numbered houses are located on the exactly opposite sides of the street.
