SMITH ...

Robinson is engineer

can someone explain the solution!!!

Answer is Smith because:

A) Fireman is not Smith, since smith beats fireman in billiards.

b) Brakeman is not Mr. Robinson Lives in Detroit, whilst Brakeman lives between Chicago and Detroit and businessman with same name as Brakeman lives in Chicago.

c)Brakeman cant be Smith because Jones salary (20,000) is not a multiple of 3. Hence Brakeman is Jones.

So only thing remaining for Smith is Engineer. Hence Smith is the engineer.
