This is the one hundred and eleventh puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Hanna. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine where wife C is to be seated.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    For starters, figure out where wife B is siting. Husband B is sitting on the right-hand side of the table, so you know from the second clue that seats 4 and 5 can be ruled out. You can also rule out seat 2 in light of the first clue, which only leaves 1 and 3 as the possible seats where wife B is sitting.

    Which one is it?

Hint Two
    Now try to figure out where wife A is sitting. From clues 1 and 2, you can narrow it down to seats 2, 3, and 5.

    From Hint 1, you learned that wife B is sitting in either seat 1 or 3.

    Now take a look at clue 3. Wife A must be in seat 5, on the opposite side of the table from wife B.

Hint Three
    Now try to figure out the location of wife D. From clues 1 and 2, you can narrow her location down to seats 3 and 5. You already figured out that wife A is in seat 5, so wife D must be in seat 3. That means wife B, whose location you narrowed down earlier to seat 1 or 3, must be sitting in seat 1.

Super Hint
    Figure out where wife E is sitting.

    From clues 1 and 2, you can narrow it down to seats 1 and 4. Wife B is in seat 1, so wife E must be in seat 4. This leaves only one seat, which must be where wife C is sitting!

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

You'd better hurry it up. The dinner party is about to start!

[edit] When Completed

A perfect match!

Wife C is seated in seat 2.

You know none of the couples sit directly opposite or next to one another, so wife A must be in seat 2, 3, or 5; B in seat 1 or 3; C in seat 1, 2, or 4; D in seat 3 or 5; and E in seat 1 or 4. Wives A and B are on opposite sides, so wife A must be in seat 5, D in seat 3, B in seat 1, and E in seat 4. That leaves only one seat for wife C.

[edit] Solution

Wife C is in seat 2.
