ICA 2014 Sudoku Puzzle #1
In order to complete this Sudoku puzzle, you'll first need to solve some or all of the ten clues listed below the diagram. The answers to the clues employ only nine different characters, which will be entered into the diagram according to the grid markings shown. Most Sudokus employ the numerals 1 through 9. This one uses 4 numerals (0, 1, 2, and 4) and five letters (A, C, H, M, and R). The clues will only yield 31 of the diagram's 81 squares. The remainder must be completed using ordinary Sudoku logic: each of the nine characters will appear once per row, once per column, and once per outlined 3x3 box. None of the clue answers will be entered into the middle row, row e. When the diagram is properly completed, however, this row will provide pertinent information regarding the next International Congress of Actuaries, which will be held in Washington, D.C.
