Four Runners

Four runners competed in a race. Dante finished before Annie. Becca wasn’t third. There were two runners between Annie and Carlos. Who won?

Answer

Carlos won the race.

There were two runners between Annie and Carlos, so the 1st and 4th position goes to either Annie or Carlos.

Becca and Danta were either 2nd or 3rd. But since Becca wasn’t 3rd, Danta has to be 3rd and Becca has to be 2nd.

Since Dante finished before Annie, Annie has to be 4th and Carlos has to be 1st.
