I did it 'My Way'

Allen, Bruce, Claire, Donna, and Emma were the top five finishers in their school's talent contest. They finished up filling, in no particular order, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th places. Oddly enough, the children came from, in no particular order, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades! In another startling coincidence, they all performed to the song "My Way" but they all did something different to the music. They either sang, tap-danced, hummed, yodelled, or whistled.

1. None of the numbers in the order of finish were exactly the same as the grade numbers.
2. Claire finished in front of Allen but behind the singer, and Donna, and the tap-dancer too, but those last three people are not necessarily in any particular order.
3. Emma finished behind Bruce but ahead of Donna.
4. The singer was in 3rd grade and the tap dancer was in 1st grade.
5. The child that was the hummer deserved to finish in last place and did finish there.
6. The yodeller was in 4th grade.


  1. Bruce who was in 3rd grade came in First for Singing.
    Emma who was in 1st grade came in Second for Tap dancing.
    Donna who was in 4th grade came in Third for Yodeling.
    Claire who was in 5th grade came in Fourth for Whistling.
    Allen who was in 2nd grade came in Fifth for Humming.
