Men A, B, and C each started off with pants and shirts of a single color. A wore red, B wore blue, and C wore white. Then they were blindfolded and swapped items of clothing. After they took off their blindfolds, here's what they said:
A: No one's shirts and pants match.
B: It looks like C's the only one of us who didn't keep any of his original clothes.
C: I don't know if I like these red pants.

Solution

Incorrect

Too bad!

Give it another try and see what develops.

Correct

Nicely done!

US Version

You know that C is the only one not wearing something from his original outfit, meaning he's not wearing anything white. You also know he has red pants, so his shirt must be blue.

Since A and B are each wearing pants or a shirt of their own, you can deduce that A is dressed in a red shirt and B in blue pants. With all that settled, all you have to do is place your remaining white items in the right places...and your puzzle is solved.
