Terms & Conditions
During a recent school reunion, four men were discussing their starting salaries. The salaries in question were, 8, 10, 12 and 14 thousand pounds per year. Of course the MP earned the most. Alan earned more than Brian and the doctor earned more than Derek, the vet. Charles could not remember what he started on. Brian, the lawyer, did not start on £10,000 nor did Derek. Can you determine who has which job and their starting salaries?
Name Profession Salary
Alan MP £14,000
Brian lawyer £12,000
Charles doctor £10,000
Derek vet £ 8,000
