This thing can multitask if you aid it. However, before it came, the world was a much darker place to live in. Sometimes it’s colder, and at other times it is rougher, but it’s always true.

The thing we are talking about has made life much easier, but at the same time, it is very good at taking people’s lives. What do you think it is?

Pauline has five favorite male relatives who all live in Europe. The men are her first cousin, her father, her brother, her uncle, and her loving husband. All the men have different names.

In no particular order, they are Edgar, Luther, Daniel, Wilfred, and Walter. The five men all live in Europe, but only one man lives in a city, and no two men share the same city.

The cities they live in are Paris, London, Berlin, Madrid, and Rome.

From the clues you’ve been given, you need to figure out the city each man lives in and his relationship with Pauline. You’ll also need to figure out what occupation each person does.

Their jobs are correspondent, professor, diplomat, student, and artist.

The assumption you have to go on is that Pauline’s husband is only related to the other men because of his marriage to his wife.
