Answer: 

Short!

This Week's Puzzle

Joe, Larry, Lucy, and Brenda are 12, 11, 10, and 9, but not necessarily in that order. We do know that the consecutive ages alternate girl, boy, girl, boy . . . from oldest to youngest. These clues will help:

  • Lucy is a year older than Joe.
  • Joe is younger than Larry.

From these two clues, can you tell me the age of each person?
