• 2) Software Selections

Morgan, Faith, Noah, and Brady have each purchased one
piece of software at a software store. Each person chose software
based on what he or she wants to be when he or she grows up. One of
them bought sports software, one bought flight-simulation software,
one bought digital photography software, and one bought music-
creation software.

Faith and Noah watched the one who bought the sports software
play baseball.
Brady and Morgan aren't interested in photography.
Faith wants to be a pilot when she grows up.
One of the boys wants to be a musician when he grows up.

Who bought each type of software?
