Answer: What are the three cards?
1. A heart(♥) is to the left of a diamond(♦).
2. A five is to the right of a jack.
3. A club(♣) is to the left of a diamond(♦).
4. A queen is to the left of a club(♣).
From 1st and 3rd hint, it is clear that both heart and club are on left of diamond and from 4th hint, it is clear that there should be a card before club(left of it) so that can only be a heart
1. ♥ ♦ 3. ♣ ♦ 4. Q ♣ So sequence would be ♥ ♣ ♦
Now, from hint 4, we can say that first card is Q of heart and then from hint 2, we can say that other 2 cards are J of club and 5 of diamond.
So final answer would be
Queen(Q) of Hearts, Jack(J) of Clubs and 5 of Diamonds
Q♥ J♣ 5♦
