Thanks for trying the Friday Free-For-All. This does it for the mental_floss Brain Game this week; it will return again on Monday. Enjoy!

Meet Adrian. She likes chocolate, but not peppermint. She doesn't swim, but loves to skydive. She hates beer, but enjoys champagne. She drives a Dodge, never a Ford. And she'd rather read a magazine than a novel. Given this information:

Is Adrian closer to her aunt or her uncle?

Here is the SOLUTION.

THE SOLUTION:

HER UNCLE.

Adrian is partial to things that end with the letter "E."

So she prefers chocolate to peppermint,
Would rather skydive than swim,
Drinks champagne instead of beer,
Drives a Dodge but not a Ford,
and prefers a magazine to a novel.

So, it stands to reason, she likes her uncle more than her aunt.

Did you come up with an alternate solution? Feel free to share it with us in the comments. Have a great weekend!
