At the local games evening, four people were competing in the draughts and chess competitions.
Finley beat Jesse in chess, Dale came third and the 16 year old won.
Finley came second in draughts, the 15 year old won, Dale beat the 18 year old and the 19 year old came third.
Kelly is 3 years younger than Jesse.
The person who came last in chess, came third in draughts and only one person got the same position in both games.
Can you determine the ages of the people and their positions in the two games?
At last month's rehearsal, four top athletes competed in two qualifying 400 metre races.
As the results were expected to be mislaid, various notes were taken to ensure the accuracy of the overall placings:
No-one finished both races in the same position.
In both races Sam beat the runner whose surname was Donald.
Blake Curtail came third in the second race and Pat came last in the first race.
In the second race the athlete whose surname was Arnold won, and the athlete whose surname was Bowler came last.
In the first race, Blake beat Jamie, but Jamie beat Sam.
Can you determine who finished where in each of the races?
