Published February 24 2019 (link)

Oliver lives with his parents, Mike and Nellie, at number 5. In each of numbers 1 to 4 lives a family, like his, with a mother, a father and one child. He tries listing the families in alphabetical order and produces the table below.

House Number   1_______ 2_______ 3_______ 4_______ 5_______
Fathers Alan Dave George John Mike
Mothers Beth Ellen Helen Kate Nellie
Children Carole Freddie Ingrid Larry Oliver

_______

However, apart from his own family, there is just one father, one mother and one child in the correct position. Neither Helen nor Beth lives at number 3 and neither Dave nor Ingrid lives at number 1. George’s house number is one less than Larry’s and Beth’s house number is one less than Carol’s.

Apart from Oliver’s family, who are correctly positioned?
