‘S Country Logic Puzzle’ Solution <— Back to ‘S’ Country Logic Puzzle B1 and C1 are given directly. Solomon Islands is the only ‘S’ country with ‘island’ in the name. Since Row 2 must be one word countries, the 3 ‘Saint’ countries must fall in E1, E3, E4 alphabetically. Syria must go in A2 because it is the only remaining 1 word Asian country. Samoa must go in E2 because it is the only remaining 1-word island country. Sri Lanka is the only remaining Asian island country. South Korea, South Sudan, and South Africa must all be in the quiz, and none can be in Column D. Therefore, South Korea must be in column A because it is Asian. It cannot be in A3, because then South Africa or South Sudan would either share a diagonal, share a row, or be in Row 2, which is reserved for 1 word countries. Therefore, South Korea must be in A4. Serbia is the only diagonal below, and Swaziland is the only African nation that begins with ‘Sw’. No ‘South’ country can be in Column D, so South Sudan goes in C5, and Sudan goes in D5. South Africa doesn’t share a diagonal or row with South Korea, so must be in C3. That is the only remaining box in Row 3 that is not adjacent to South Africa. Switzerland and Sweden are the only remaining ‘Sw’ countries and must be diagonal with South Korea. Since Slovakia and Slovenia must be adjacent to Switzerland, Switzerland could not be in D1, and must be in B3. Therefore, Sweden is in D4. C3 is the only remaining spot for Senegal in Row 3. Suriname is the only country remaining in the Americas. Row 4 is the only row with multiple spaces available, so Slovenia must go in B4 in order to be on the same row as D4. Somalia is only one word, so cannot go on Slovakia’s diagonal. Sierra Leone is the only country left.
