Basically what x2495iiii said, sorry but I was still typing when you mr.X had already answered it.

- In each house lives a person of different nationality.
- These five homeowners each drink a different kind of beverage, smoke different brand of cigar and keep a different pet.
1. The British man lives in a red house.
2. The Swedish man keeps dogs as pets.
3. The Danish man drinks tea.
4. The Green house is next to, and on the left of the White house.
5. The owner of the Green house drinks coffee.

I once solved this riddle it was really hard, but in the end the answer was the German. Also this is Einsteins riddle and he was German so I always thought of that as a little coincidence
