The following is the first of the logic puzzles for this season of B.Q..

This is relatively easy and future puzzles will gradually become more difficult.

2 points for a correct solution and 1 for a “near miss”.

John never misses an opportunity to watch the night sky for falling stars. Using only the clues that follow, determine the location (Collie, Esperance, Israelite Bay, Leonora) and date (August 4th, 7th,17th, 25th) for each of his night-time trips, as well how many shooting stars he saw (2, 9, 16, 23).

Clues

1. The August 25 trip logged somewhat more shooting stars the outing to Israelite Bay.
2. The August 4 outing was either the trip to Esperance or the outing to Israelite Bay.
3. The trip where they saw 23 shooting stars was in Leonora.
4. The trip to Israelite Bay logged 14 fewer shooting stars than the Augustl 7 outing.
5. The August 17 trip logged somewhat fewer shooting stars the trip to Esperance.
6. The August 7 trip logged 23 shooting stars.
