Only 2 Percent of the World is Apparently Able to Solve This ‘Young Einstein’ Riddle

Legendary genius Albert Einstein is believed to have written a riddle as a young boy called “Einstein’s riddle.” There is a rumor going around that only 2% of the world can solve it. The riddle goes as follows:

There are five houses in five different colors in a row. In each house lives a person with a different nationality. The five owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet. No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar, or drink the same beverage.

Other facts:
