Can You Solve Einstein's Riddle?

Many have attempted, and only a few have succeeded. Apparently, Einstein predicted that only 2% will prevail. Will you be successful in solving Einstein's riddle? Try it out. 

Given:

  1. There are 5 houses in five different colors.
  2. In each house lives a person with a different nationality.
  3. These five owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar and keep a certain pet.
  4. No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar or drink the same beverage.

The question is: Who owns the fish?
