A shipment of butterflies was mixed up by the dock workers, and they could not find who bought which species, where it was from, and what was the price. All the workers know is that Alejandro, Faye, Yvette, Sophie, and Zachary could have each bought butterflies that cost \$60, \$75, \$90, \$105, or \$120. Each could have bought the Clearwing, the Emperor, the Grayling, the Swallowtail, or the Torturix butterflies. Each butterfly could have lived in Australia, Jordan, Luxembourg, Panama, or Qatar. It is up to you to find out who bought which butterfly, what was the price, and where did it come from with the provided clues:

1. Neither the butterfly from Luxembourg nor the one from Australia sold for \$90.

2. The Emperor butterfly cost \$30 more than the Torturix butterfly.

3. Zachary's purchase was \$75.

4. The butterfly from Australia cost less than the one from Luxembourg.

5. Alejandro's purchase was from Luxembourg.

6. Of Yvette's purchase and the purchase for \$60, one was from Qatar and the other was the Torturix.
