Question

Among the nine persons interviewed in a poll, three are Easterners, three are Southerners, and three are Westerners. By profession, three of them are teachers, three are lawyers, and three are doctors, and no two of the same profession come from the same part of the United States. Also, three are Democrats, three are Republicans, and three are Independents, and no two of the same political affiliation are of the same profession or come from the same part of the United States. If one of the teachers is an Easterner and an Independent, another teacher is a Southerner and a Republican, and one of the lawyers is a Southerner and a Democrat, what is the political affiliation of the doctor who is a Westerner? This exercise is a simplified version of a famous problem posed by R.A. Fisher in his classical work, The Design of Experiments.
