## San Jose Puzzle

Solution Step 0/0

16 US Cities are split into two groups of eight cities each. Group 1 is on the left and Group 2 is on the right.

Into which group and after which city in that group the city of San Jose will go?

### Explanations

In Group 1 the initial letter of a city’s first word precedes in English alphabet the initial letter of the city’s second word. For example, alphabetically “B” precedes “H” in [B]everly [H]ills.

In Group 2 it is vice versa – the initial letter of a city’s first word is placed after the initial letter of the city’s second word in English alphabet. For example, from the city of [L]os [A]ngeles the “L” goes after the “A” in context of the alphabet.

Based on this, [S]an [J]ose belongs to Group 2.

In every group the cities are arranged alphabetically based on their second words. Thus, in Group 2 the city of San Jose should be inserted between New Haven and St. Louis, i.e. after the 4th city in that group.
