Three friends all live in houses with painted doors. Can you use these clues to find out what colour door they have and what road they live on?

Friends - Carly, Harry, Alan
Colours - Red, Blue, Pink
Streets - Oak St, South Ave, Drury Ave

1) Carly just loves the colour pink and she was ecstatic when her mom painted the door for her.

2) Alan's always around at Harry's house. It's easy to get there because Oak St is only just around the corner.

3) South Ave has mostly white doors, so the red one, belonging to one of the friends, stands out easily to the passing cars.

4) Alan thinks that his friend's blue door clashes badly with their house but he doesn't want to tell them in case he hurts their feelings.
