How did you solve it? I got this far before hitting what looked like a combinatoric explosion:

I, too, began by pairing headings with nothing in common (null-set intersection) and also kept in mind 20 cannot be in <20 or >20 (or in Prime or Square Numbers).

I found the answer of this Puzzle as well. This puzzle has many solutions to it. There is no single solution. I can send you either a link or an attachment file to show you how I start attacking this problem. The best way to attack this problem is by creating the same chart on excel for that will help you to eliminate a certain possibilities. Also, list all the odds , evens, prime, square, etc... numbers. Highlight what you have already chose to avoid confusion. You will see once you are doing that, you will be able to attack the problem. I just got to this site and did not know about it until yesterday when someone post this link on Linkedin. If you want to know about the way to attack this problem, please feel free to reply.
