## The Weekly Warlock Wind-Up: Number 37 (answer)

This week, I gave you these clues to accompany this diagram, and asked you to label the towns and answer some questions:

• Town B is south of town A and northeast of town C
• Town D is west of town F and northwest of town C
1. Which town is north of town F?
2. Which town is southeast of town E?
3. Which town is south of town F?
4. Which town is southwest of town E?

In case you don’t want to see them, the answers are all after the break!

So the first step was to label the towns, and this was pretty simple. Taking the first clue, we are told that B is south of A – for B to be south of anything, it must be either on the middle or the bottom row of dots, so that already narrows it down. Taking the second part of the clue (that B is northeast of C) and looking at the four remaining dots, only the one on the far right is northeast of anything, so we can now place B. We can also therefore place A and C, giving us this:

We can place D, E and F the same way by looking at the other clue; D is northwest of C, F must be east of D (putting it in the middle) and E is therefore the remaining dot at the top:

Now that our map is completed, the questions are easy:

1. Which town is north of town F? E.
2. Which town is southeast of town E? B.
3. Which town is south of town F? C.
4. Which town is southwest of town E? D.

I do heartily apologise that the answers don’t spell anything! That aside, how’d you do? It was perhaps a bit easier this week.
