BrainFour friends were discussing their prize winning carp. There were four different colours: red, green, blue and yellow.

No lady has had the same colour fish twice.

The lady who currently has the green carp used to have a yellow one.

Betty, who is not Mrs Longheart currently has the blue fish.

Mrs Kipper who now has a yellow one, used to have a blue one.

Neither Mrs Ada Fishtail nor Mrs Jester, have ever owned a yellow fish.

Cybil is not Mrs Kipper.

Diane and Ada have never shared the same colour fish.
