[edit] Hints

Hint One
    This puzzle is about conditions. Ask yourself: what if Jim were A? What if he were B? Start with a possible answer and see if it fits the conditions of the question.

Hint Two
    Steve and Mike are next to each other. In other words, they are one of the groups AB, BC, or CD.

Hint Three

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

Jim is D. Steve and Mike are next to each other, and Tom is above Steve. Since you know Jim is not next to Tom, he must be on the lowest step, so he is D.

A is Tom, and Steve and Mike are B and C, although there is no way of knowing which is which with this information.

[edit] Solution


Jim is D.
