Nancy is going to play A NEW GAME!  It's called FORTUNE HUNTER.  She has the
chance to win: 

$5000 in cash AND
Baker's Rack
Trampoline
Refrigerator/Freezer
Loveseat 

Bob: "Eliminate the least expensive prize."
She chooses the baker's rack.
Bob: "Eliminate the prize whose price starts with 9."
She chooses the loveseat.
Bob: "Eliminate the prize with four digits in the price.
She chooses the refrigerator/freezer, and is left with the trampoline. 

Does the gift box associated with the trampoline contain $5000? 

No.  It was the box with the baker's rack.  She should have eliminated the
trampoline instead of the baker's rack first; she was right about the other
two.
