Einstein's problem

Albert Einstein supposedly said that 98% of the people in the world couldn't solve this one:

There are 5 houses sitting next to each other, each with a different

color, occupied by 5 guys, each from a different country,

and with a favorite drink, cigarette, and pet. Here are the facts:

The British occupies the red house.

The Swedish owns a dog.

The Danish drinks tea.

The green house is on the left of the white house.

The owner of the green house drinks coffee.

The person who smokes "Pall Mall" owns a bird.

The owner of the yellow house smokes "Dunhill".

The owner of the middle house drinks milk.

The Norwegian occupies the 1st house.

The person who smokes "Blend" lives next door to the person who owns

a cat.

The person who owns a horse live next door to the person who

smokes "Dunhill".

The person who smokes "Blue Master" drinks beer.

The German smokes "Prince".

The Norwegian lives next door to the blue house.

The person who smokes "Blend" lives next door to the person who drinks

water.

The question is: Who owns the fish?

Don't spoil it!

It's much, much easier if you make a chart, rather than trying to keep everything in your head at once.

i am felling like embarased , i thought that this was a tough question but you all solved quite easily ............

i think by saying 98% he meant that , approx. 90% see the question try a little and give up .............

then 8% people try hard but due to sily mistake or incorrect methode they are not able to solve it ...........

and finally 2% are those who made it till the end.............
