apples

Question

i just made this up:

there are 5 apples in a row. 2 are rotten, 3 are ripe. 2 are green, 1 is yellow. 2 are red. 2 have long stems. 3 have no stems at all. The first apple is the same color as the third, and the second is not the same color as the fourth. A ripe apple is right before a green apple, and a yellow apple is not next to a long-stemmed apple. Green apples are never rotten.

Explain each apple, first through fifth.

1: red, long stemmed, ripe

2: green, long stemmed, ripe

3: red, short stemmed, rotten

4: yellow, short stemmed, rotten

5: green, short stemmed, ripe

any other solutions?

any other solutions?

Your "short stemmed" should be "no stem" per your setup.

Here's a couple other solutions:

1st letter: g = green, y= yellow, r= red

2nd letter: n = no stem, l = long stem

3rd letter: r = ripe, b = rotten (bad)

rnb, ylb, rnr, glr, gnr

glr, rlr, gnr, ynb, rnb

gnr, rlr, gnr, ylb, rnb
