Sir V and Sir R?

1) tells us that H-G not possible, and V-G not possible

2) tells us that A-G not possible, and V-G not possible

3) tells us that A-R not possible, and H-R not possible

4) tells us that B-V not possible and B-A not possilbe

5) tells us that H-G possible but it conflicts with (1) and H-R possible but conflict with (3)

6) tell us that V-R possible and V-A possible but conflict with (1)

so the only possiblity left is V and R!

right? :huh:

Hey if you like this puzzle, try the other one I put on from my book, Knight's Adversaries. It's a little more challenging.
