Solution to: The Round Table

From the second statement, we know that the six people sat at the table in the following way (clockwise and starting with Helen's husband):

Helen's husband, woman, man, woman, man, Esther

Because Helen did not sit beside her husband, the situation must be as follows:

Helen's husband, woman, man, Helen, man, Esther

The remaining woman must be Anna, and combining this with the first statement, we arrive at the following situation:

Helen's husband, Anna, man, Helen, Victor, Esther

Because of the third statement, Jim and Roger can be placed in only one way, and we now know the complete order:

Helen's husband Roger, Anna, Jim, Helen, Victor, Esther

Conclusion: the name of Helen's husband is Roger.
