Academic Decathlon 2004 Logic Quiz

Sheets of Papers  (300 points)

Eight identical sheets of paper have been placed overlapping.  The last sheet to be placed was A because it is shown completely.  List the eight pieces in the order placed, ending with A.

Answer:

B, G, H, and A were all placed in corners.

C and F both cover B, and C covers F, so the order of this trio is B, F, C.

E covers G, so the order of this pair is G, E.  Moreover, G and E both cover C, so the order of all the sheets visible on the left side must have been B, F, C, G, E.

D covers H, so the order of this pair is H, D.  Also, both H and D cover E, so the order of the sheets must be B, F, C, G, E, H, D, A.
