Problem 1: Jelly Beans


Bertie has six jelly beans left: one each of Avocado, Buttermilk, Centipede, Dirt, Earwax and Fried Beans flavors. Harry reaches into the bag and takes out three jelly beans. 
What possible groups of three jelly beans could Harry take? For example, Harry might take the Buttermilk, Dirt and Earwax jelly beans.
