A "couple" is represented by the intersection of the column and row of corresponding individuals. For example, "Alan & Erica" is where Row 1 (Alan) and Column 2 (Erica) meet.... MALES: Alan, Mike, Rick ; Leon, Ryan, Steve. FEMALES: Kate, Rachel, Sue ; Beth, Erica, Megan..... Note: If someone is heterosexual, their partner is of the opposite sex..... This logic problem is best solved by using both the clues and process of elimination, by using the Xs to mark off which couples cannot be together.
