A Plumber, a Carpenter and an Electrician Walk Into a Bar

A plumber, a carpenter, and an electrician applied for jobs with a famous construction firm. From the information given below can you identify each worker's full name, job, and age?

Names: Federer, Nadal, Agassi.
Surnames: Tim, John, Bjorn.
Ages: 25, 30, 35 (but not respectively).

2. Tim, the electrician, is older than Federer.

3. Nadal is the carpenter.

4. The plumber is 30 years old.

5. The youngest worker of the three is not called Bjorn.


  1. John Nadal 25 Carpenter
    Bjorn Federer 30 Plumber
    Tim Agassi 35 Electrician

    From Mrs. Burks 4th Grade

  2. I agree!
    John Nadal 25 Carpenter
    Bjorn Federer 30 Plumber
    Tim Agassi 35 Electrician

  3. oh yay :) i agree too, although i listed mine as Nadal John, Federer Bjorn, and Agassi Tim... I thought Surname meant last?

  4. Sorry about that Ashlee, I did mean for the last names to be Nadal, Federer and Agassi.

  5. Wow, that is quite a mind-boggling riddle I must say. If you are sleepy and already starting to doze off, then this question would really perk you up. I agree with the answers given above and I think the hint that gave it away is the plumber being 30 years old. Great carefully-thought of question by the way. It takes a smartie to write a smart question and a smart aleck to solve it.
