  • Help with This Clue

    I need help with another clue that isn't making sense to me. Here in this puzzle I've attached, it is stating that I can eliminate the possibility that Barbara is on the low-fat diet due to this clue:

    3. Of the dieter who started a rowing regimen and the friend who used the dairy-free diet, one is Barbara and the other lost 11 lbs.
    The problem? Based on the puzzle-board, I have eliminated the possibility that the rower is on the low-fat diet, but what's confusing to me is that both Barbara and the one who lost 11 pounds can both either be the rower or the one on the dairy-free diet. How is it possible to eliminate Barbara as being on the low-fat diet? If the low-fat diet cannot be the rower, this only works if I had figured out that Barbara is indeed the rower, then I could eliminate her from being on the low-fat diet.

      Good job, evessal. These 'of the' clues are very complex, and take a bit of getting used to. That X already in low fat for rowing means that neither Barbara nor 11# can be low fat. I had a tough time getting used to those kinds of clues, too.

        Thank you! That was only a moderate puzzle. I've been doing some of the challenging ones and wow, they are tough! I love it though, these puzzles have been keeping me engaged and I've been getting better at solving them. Got to keep the mind sharp!
