Puzzle

US Version

The four children below were playing in a park when they suddenly realized they needed to go home. In their haste, however, they mixed up their coats!

A: "I forgot my coat..."
B: "Hey! A's name is written in this coat!"
C: "Wait a minute. I didn't even bring a coat today, but I'm wearing one now!"
D: "This definitely isn't my coat."

So, who's wearing D's coat?

Hints

US Version

If you think rationally about whose coat each child is wearing, you should figure out the answer in no time.

For example, you know B is wearing A's coat, right?

UK Version

If you think calmly about whose coat each child is wearing, you should get it right away.
For example, B is wearing A's coat, right?

US Version

A isn't wearing a coat.
B is wearing A's coat.
C is wearing a coat, even though he didn't bring one...but it's not A's.

It's a little convoluted, but the answer's in there somewhere.

UK Version

A isn't wearing a coat.
B is wearing A's coat.
C is wearing a coat even though he didn't bring one, but it's not A's.

It's a little tricky, but you've almost got it.

US Version

Since C didn't bring a coat, there are only three present: A's, B's, and D's. B is wearing A's coat, and D isn't wearing his own coat...

Got it now?

UK Version

C didn't bring a coat, so there are only three coats, A, B and D's. B is wearing A's coat, and D isn't wearing his own coat.

Do you get it now?

US Version

The only coats you need to worry about are B's and D's.

If you read all of the statements again, you should figure it out.

UK Version

The only coats remaining are B's and D's

Solution

Incorrect

US Version

Too bad!

D isn't wearing his own coat, and there are three other children present. Use their statements to narrow down who's wearing what.

UK Version

Too bad.

D isn't wearing his own coat.
That leaves three children who are possibly wearing it.
Considering you can rule out the child you just picked, there aren't many left, are there?

Correct

US Version

Correct!

A, B, and D all brought coats to the park. B is wearing A's coat. So this just leaves the coats that B and D originally brought. D isn't wearing his own coat, so he must be wearing B's.

This means C must be wearing D's coat!

UK Version

That's right!

The answer is C. A, B and D all had coats with them. B is wearing A's coat. That leaves B and D's coats, but since D isn't wearing his own coat, he must be wearing B's. As such, you know that C is wearing D's coat.
