Logic Problems: Arjun’s Ice-cream and Hawa Hawai Trip

Arjun has a challenge to arrange a 5 scoop ice cream cone to spend vacation at Hawa Hawai. Each of his 5 scoops is a different flavor of ice cream. The five flavors are blueberry, chocolate, strawberry, vanilla and bubble gum. You don’t know what order his ice cream flavors are from top to bottom. However, here are some clues to see if you can figure out what flavors are from top to bottom:

1. The bottom flavor has 10 letters.
2. The vanilla scoop touches both the chocolate and blueberry scoop.
3. Vanilla is below the chocolate scoop but above the bubblegum scoop.

Can you apply some logic to figure out the order of scoops by flavor to help Arjun visit Hawa Hawai?

    • YEs you are right!

      The order is :

      chocolate
      vanila
      blueberry
      bubble gum
      strawberry

      Explanation:

      Clue 1. The bottom flavor has 10 letters.

      So, The last one is surely STRAWBERRY.

      Clue 2. The vanilla scoop touches both the chocolate and blueberry scoop.

      Now we have few possibilities :

      Chocolate BlueBerry xxxxxxx xxxxxx
      Vanilla Vanilla Chocolate BlueBerry
      BlueBerry Chocolate Vanilla Vanilla
      xxxxxx xxxxxx BlueBerry Chocolate
      Strawberry Strawberry Strawberry Strawberry

      Clue 3. Vanilla is below the chocolate scoop but above the bubblegum scoop.

      Here xxxxxx is Bubblegum, Since Vanilla is above, It can be choice 1 or 2,
      Vanilla is below chocolate in choice 1,

      So We have choice 1 as the right answer,
