HERE’S HOW YOU CAN WIN…
Five people went to a visit to the optometrist. Can you work out their appointment times, what type of eyewear they purchased, and how much they each spent? Read the clues and place a tick in an intersecting box if you have any positive information and use a cross if you have any definite negative information. For example, you learn that the contact lenses cost $79, so we have placed some ticks and crosses in the grid. Using this method, you should be able to fill in the smaller grid. Work out what type of eyewear April bought, which is the coloured area of the smaller grid. This is the winning word. For your chance to win, enter online at thewest.com.au/puzzles.
Brendan spent $79 on contact lenses. The person with the earliest appointment spent the least money. The monocle was purchased by a happy customer whose name is an anagram of a word meaning a happy facial expression. $99 was spent at the 11:00 appointment. April’s appointment was half an hour before Julie’s. The sunnies were purchased for $249 by someone who does not share a name with a month. The monocle was under $100, but was more expensive than the goggles.
