Question 1 of 10
1. Tristan's friends' names are Joseph, Rosana, Rachel, Ralph, Jane and Jared.

Their last names are Black, White, Green, Chalmers, Palmers and Harris.

The school leaving pranks they performed were: putting the school on the market, hiding a dead rat in the staffroom, spray painting the headmaster's car metallic gold, applying superglue to chairs, causing the library to disappear, and putting some honey on some doorknobs.

One received an athletic scholarship, another went to a performing arts school, one repeated the year, another went backpacking in Asia, another became a barista and one started an arts degree.

Using a grid or pen and paper may help you figure out which last name each friend had, which prank they were responsible for and what they did after they left school.

CLUES
1. The name of the person who put the school on the market begins with J, unlike the name of the person who spray painted the headmaster's car a shiny, most gaudy gold colour (which doesn't).
2. Those of Tristan's friends whose names begin with R all also have surnames which end in S.
3. Ms. Green was delighted when she received a letter containing an athletic scholarship offer, and Mr. Harris was equally elated when he found out he'd been accepted into a certain School of Performing Arts.
4. None of those who spray painted the headmaster's car, made the library disappear or applied superglue to every single teacher's chair (in every classroom) were female.
5. The person who left a dead rat in the staffroom repeated the year.
6. The person responsible for behoneying doorknobs was a Ms. Chalmers.
7. The great magician who made the library disappear got into Arts at Oxford, and stayed in touch with Rosana during her gap year when she backpacked through Asia.
8. Though Joseph was an accomplice in the library prank, he was not the main actor in that case.
9. It was Mr Black who began working as a barista after he completed a six week course.
10. Each of Tristan's friends visited him in the 12 months after he did his final exams.

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Tristan's friends' names are Joseph, Rosana, Rachel, Ralph, Jane and Jared. Their last names are Black, White, Green, Chalmers, Palmers and Harris. The school leaving pranks they performed were: putting the school on the market, hiding a dead rat in the staffroom, spray painting the headmaster's car metallic gold, applying superglue to chairs, causing the library to disappear, and putting some honey on some doorknobs. One received an athletic scholarship, another went to a performing arts school, one repeated the year, another went backpacking in Asia, another became a barista and one started an arts degree. Using a grid or pen and paper may help you figure out which last name each friend had, which prank they were responsible for and what they did after they left school. CLUES 1. The name of the person who put the school on the market begins with J, unlike the name of the person who spray painted the headmaster's car a shiny, most gaudy gold colour (which doesn't). 2. Those of Tristan's friends whose names begin with R all also have surnames which end in S. 3. Ms. Green was delighted when she received a letter containing an athletic scholarship offer, and Mr. Harris was equally elated when he found out he'd been accepted into a certain School of Performing Arts. 4. None of those who spray painted the headmaster's car, made the library disappear or applied superglue to every single teacher's chair (in every classroom) were female. 5. The person who left a dead rat in the staffroom repeated the year. 6. The person responsible for behoneying doorknobs was a Ms. Chalmers. 7.

Each of Tristan's friends visited him in the 12 months after he did his final exams. QUESTION: What did the person who applied some honey to some doorknobs become after they left school?

Answer: Intrepid backpacker

Clue 6 tells us the cuplrit in the honey prank was female, and the person whom clue 7 tells us did arts is male, according to clue 4. Clue 9 tells us the person who worked as a barista was also male, and clue 3 tells us the person who went to a performing arts school was too. So the person who put honey on the doorknobs must have gone backpacking. Clue 7 tells us her name is Rosana, and clue 6 her surname is Chalmers.

The truth is, Rosana and Jared were a couple. But they were both far too busy to miss each other desperately before they met up to visit Tristan in the clink in October.
2. What did Jared do as his farewell prank?

Answer: Made the library disappear

We already know he didn't put honey on doorknobs. As he is male, clue 4 confirms that he didn't leave a rat in the staffroom. Clue 1 tells us the person who spray painted the headmaster's car's name begins with an R, so clue 4 also indicates that Joseph and Jared must have been responsible for supergluing chairs and making the library vanish. Clue 8 says Joseph wasn't the main actor in the library prank, so that must have been Jared.

It was a good thing he had access to a fortune as he could not have pulled this prank off without one.
3. Which misdemeanor did the young Mr/Miss Green commit before they left school?

Answer: Put the school on the market

According to clue 3, Ms. Green is female; hence, according to clue 4 she didn't spray paint the car or make the library disappear. Clue 3 tells us Ms Green's first name must begin with the letter J, so she is not Rosana or Rachel and must be Jane. According to clue 1, the person who put the school on the market's name begins with a J, so Jane Green must have done that.

No one expressed any interest in purchasing the frankly foul-smelling, decrepit school.
4. Which young person decided to repeat the year (and pulled almost as excellent a prank as the recalcitrant Tristan's the following year, before doing law?)

Answer: Rachel

Clue 5 tells us the person who repeated the year put the rat in the staffroom; according to clue 4 she must have been female. Clue 1 tells us she wasn't Jane, and clue 7 states Rosana didn't repeat the year; so we know Rachel did.

What was fantastic about the rat stunt was that nobody found the rat until it had completely decomposed, and Rachel was around to see - and smell - all the consequences of it, from demoralized staff to a malodorous building. Of course she got away with it, and her part in Tristan's prank, scot free.
5. What did the person whose surname is White go on to?

Answer: In depth study, as an arts student

Clue 2 tells us the person's given name begins with a J; Rosana, according to clue 7, backpacked through Asia. It was Mr Black, according to clue 9, who began working as a barista. Clue 3 tells us Ms Green got the scholarship, so White must have done arts.

White got the highest marks of Tristan's friends.
6. Which end-of-school prank did Ralph pull?

Answer: Spray painting gold the headmaster's car

The information in clue 4 means that Ralph used superglue or spray paint. Clue 1 tells us the spray paint felon's name begins with an R, so as the only male whose name begins with an R, Ralph must have spray-painted the headmaster's car gold.

The headmaster secretly liked the look of his car after Ralph had painted it.
7. The person responsible for leaving a dead rat hidden amongst files in the staffroom was the...?

Answer: Obstreperous Mr/Ms. Palmers

Clue 4 tells us the person who hid the rat so well in the staffroom was female and clue 5 says she repeated the year; clue 3 tells us that wasn't Ms Green, who got an athlete's scholarship. Clue 6 says Ms. Chalmers put honey on doorknobs. Clue 2 indicates that the name of Jane, the only female whose name begins with a J, doesn't end in an S, and clue 1 says the person who put the school on the market (also female from clue 4) and therefore did not hide the rat had a given name beginning with J. Therefore the rat dropper must have been Rosana or Rachel. Clue 2 tells us their surnames end in S, so it could only have been Palmers who dropped the rat.
8. Who won the athletics scholarship?

Answer: Nippy Jane

Clue 3 tells us Ms Green won the scholarship; according to clue 2, her first name must begin with a J and the only female whose first name does, is Jane.

Jane saw Tristan before she took a plane to the States to go to Yale. She was annoyed for a year by a garrulous roommate.
9. What did the person who applied superglue to the teachers' chairs do after they left school?

Answer: Entered into the hospitality industry as a barista

According to clue 4, the person who put superglue on the chairs was Jared or Joseph or Ralph. Clue 1 and clue 4 combine to show that Ralph must have spray painted the car, leaving Jared or Joseph as responsible for the other two pranks carried out by males. Joseph, according to clue 8, didn't make the library disappear so he must have superglued the teachers' chairs. Clue 7 says the library-vanishing magician got into arts. Clue 3 says Mr Harris did performing arts and according to clue 2, Mr Harris' first name doesn't start with a J. Therefore Joseph must be the Mr Black mentioned in clue 9, which says he worked as a barista.

A lot of teachers sat on the chairs.

Joseph liked talking to customers. He disapproved of what Tristan did, but saw him every month.
10. The first letters of answers 1-10 spell a word, which will tell you: What happened to Tristan?

Answer: Delivered a custodial sentence for his prank

The word the first initials of the correct answers spell is imprisoned. Tristan got four years for the felony he committed at his school. All he did was blow up the science lab (Rachel just helped him get away with it). People were nearby when it blew.

In summary, Jane Green put the school on the market and won an athlete's scholarship; Rachel Palmers left a rat in the staffroom and repeated the year; Rosana Chalmers put honey on doorknobs and went backpacking in Asia; Jared White made the library disappear and did Arts; Joseph Black covered teacher's chairs with superglue and became a barista; Ralph Harris spray-painted the headmaster's car and went to a performing arts college. Tristan went to jail.
