Hey, Seoul Sister

Posted on

Today’s a big family reunion for the 20 members of the Smith family! To celebrate, they are taking a group photo, lining up in four neat rows of five people each. Nobody is standing next to, in front of, or behind another person of the same gender. Can you figure out who is standing in which spot, based on each of their statements? Then, you’ll be able to figure out what the family plans to do together after the photo is taken–and where.
