How to solve advance Puzzle

First of all, scan all the information given on the puzzle; 

1. 7colleagues names VJ, RJ, AJ, MJ, HJ, NJ and TJ

2. Months- November(30 days), March(31 days), February(28 days), September(30 days), April(30 days), June(31 days) and October(31 days)

3. They like different coffees i.e. Nescafe, Folgers, Jacobs, Milestone, Tassim, Sanka and Kenco

First of all, try to find exact info; eg

First of all, put on the static value in one column; eg month

Now put these information in a table. 

# The one, who likes Jacobs coffee, has the presentation in the month, that has less than 30 days. Means who like Jacob has presentation in the month of Feb. and

# TJ doesn’t like Jacobs, means, TJ has no presentation in the month of Feb.

MonthNameCoffee
February(28 days) Jacob
March(31 days)  
April(30 days)  
June(31 days)  
September(30 days)  
October(31 days)  
November(30 days)  

Now put the info related to Jacob.

# Persons, who like Jacobs and Kenco coffees, have three presentations between them.

MonthNameCoffee
February(28 days) Jacob
March(31 days)  
April(30 days)  
June(31 days)  
September(30 days) Kenco
October(31 days)  
November(30 days)  

 

# TJ’s presentation is in the month, which has 31 days. Means, TJ has presentation in the month of March, June or October.

Now we have three option related to TJ, TJ either has presentation in the month of March, June or October.

# There are two presentations between the presentation of TJ and the one, who likes the Milestone.

but TJ cant has presentation in the month of March because we cant put milestone in place of Kenco.

now milestone will be in the month of November.

# TJ has the presentation just before the presentation of AJ.

# The one, who likes Nescafe, has the presentation before the presentations of TJ and AJ.

# NJ and the one, who likes Nescafe, have one presentation between them

in this case, if we put Nescafe before TJ and AJ, there is no place left for NJ, so this formation becomes wrong. now move to 2nd table

(this probability is wrong because, *MJ has the presentation just after the one, who likes Milestone)

MonthNameCoffee
February(28 days) Jacob
March(31 days)  
April(30 days)  
June(31 days)TJ 
September(30 days)AJKenco
October(31 days)  
November(30 days) milestone

# There are two presentations between the presentation of TJ and the one, who likes the Milestone.

in this case, milestone will be in the month of April.

# TJ has the presentation just before the presentation of AJ.

# The one, who likes Nescafe, has the presentation before the presentations of TJ and AJ.

# NJ and the one, who likes Nescafe, have one presentation between them

# NJ doesn’t have the presentation in the month, which has less than 31 days. Means, NJ has presentation in the month of March, June or October.

here also we get two probability. one on June and other in march

(this probability is wrong because, *MJ has the presentation just after the one, who likes Milestone)

MonthNameCoffee
February(28 days) Jacob
March(31 days) Nescafe
April(30 days) milestone
June(31 days)NJ 
September(30 days) Kenco
October(31 days)TJ 
November(30 days)AJ 

2nd probability (this probability is right because *MJ has the presentation just after the one, who likes Milestone)

MonthNameCoffee
February(28 days) Jacob
March(31 days)NJ 
April(30 days) milestone
June(31 days)MJNescafe
September(30 days) Kenco
October(31 days)TJ 
November(30 days)AJ 

now put rest of the info in this table:

# VJ has the presentation just before the one, who likes Folgers.

# AJ doesn’t like Sanka

# MJ and HJ have two presentations between them.
