Playing Cards Puzzle - 7 February

On your travels you come to an old man on the side of the road holding three cards from a standard deck face down. Trying to make conversation you ask him what the three cards are.
He tells you, 'To the left of the queen, are one or two jacks. To the right of the jack, are one or two jacks. To the right of the club, are one or two diamonds. To the left of the diamond, are one or two diamonds.' What are the three cards?

  3. I agree that the card are the Jacks of Clubs and Diamonds and the Queen of Diamonds but the order appears uncertain ... JD JC QD, JC QD JD & JC JD QD ALL appear to fit ALL of the requirements.

  5. As written, the puzzle didn't ask for the order of the cards, but good eye catching the fact that several orders will suffice. I wouldn't have noticed that.
