Puzzle Ten - Scouting for Britain
Vincent Brantock, a scout for the All-Britain Quidditch Exhibition Team, is observing the Seekers of the various teams to see which might be the ideal choice for the upcoming Exhibition match against Canada.
Brantock visited five British teams (Appleby Arrows, Chudley Cannons, Kenmare Kestrels, Puddlemere United, and Tutshill Tornadoes), and observed their Seekers. He found that his job will be difficult, as each of the five Seekers displayed great skill at one aspect of the game (precision flying, Wronski Feint, immense speed, Plumpton Pass, and diving catches).
Can you figure out which team's Seeker displayed each of the various skills, and the order in which Brantock scouted them?
You may use the following table to help you figure it out. When you've completed the puzzle, you may check your work - a link to the solution is at the bottom of the page.
- In between his observation of the Chudley Cannons and the team with the Seeker skilled at spectacular diving catches (in one order or another), Brantock scouted either one or two other teams.
- Immediately after scouting the Kenmare Kestrels, Brantock scouted the team whose Seeker had the most precise flying of any Seeker he'd ever seen, after which he scouted the team whose Seeker is the fastest in all of Great Britain.
- Brantock scouted the Appleby Arrows, then two more teams, and then scouted the team whose Seeker had perfected the Plumpton Pass.
- While scouting the Tutshill Tornadoes, Brantock saw their Seeker pull of a Wronski Feint that had to be seen to be believed.
