Jim worked at a hotel as a bellboy. One day he came back from lunch and found four suitcases: one orange and red, one green and yellow, one blue and white, and one gray and black, all without names. Laying on one of the suitcases was a note. Jim read the paper and after a few minutes of thought, he was able to take the luggage to the proper rooms.
Below is a copy of the note. Using the clues, can you match the people to their suitcases?
Betty June and John Garth came by themselves, so the people in clue #2 must have been Jason Smith and Sally Anderson.
Therefore, Sally had the green and yellow suitcase and Jason had the blue and white suitcase (clues #4 and #5).
A man (John Garth) had the orange and red suitcase (clue #6), so that leaves the gray and black suitcase to Betty June.
