I have finished the problem guys at last.But i took 1 full hour for this.
I have attached the solution as an excel table with this post.It is encrypted with a 15 digit password.The password is the mixture of the first 3 letters of the house men.
That is,
if the houses are
1)brit
2)swede
3)dane
4)norwegian
5)german

then the password is
bri
swe
dan
nor
ger
combined without any space (i.e)briswedannorger.
I have messaged Rajesh with the answer.Rajesh please reply if the solution is not right.

It's German who has the fish.

German:lives in Green house,drinks coffee,smokes Prince..

I worked out by the method of elimination along columns & rows.

Am I one among those 2% people?

Was easy... But nice one...  Still i hv a doubt how can we assume that fifth animal has to be fish... cant it be anything else (is it a catch???)

On assuming fifth element as fish, answer is :

The fifth cannot be the one to catch Saurabh.
The first two houses could be easily found out fully.
We would then have a partially filled third one but it will give us the clear info about choosing the fourth animal.So there will be only one left for the fifth house which is fish.
