## Puzzle

One day, four people took part in a racing tournament. First they held races of two, then the winners raced against each other, while the losers battled for third.

Can you work out the order based on the comments below?

A: "I won one race and lost another."
B: "I didn't make it to the final!"
C: "I'm just glad I beat A."
D: "If only I hadn't lost to B..."

## Hints

Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

B didn't make it to the final. In other words, she lost the first race, so she's one of the two people competing for third.

It seems D lost the race with B. From Hint 1, you know that B lost the first race and was competing in the third-place runoff.

In other words, the race in which B beat D had to be the runoff.

A won one race and lost another, and C says she beat A. So that means A's one loss was in the race against C.

US Version

You know from Hint 2 that B and D were competing in the third-place runoff, so that means A and C had to have been competing in the final. So who beat whom?

UK Version

You know from Hint 2 that B and D were competing in the third-place runoff, so that means A and C had to have been competing in the final. So who beat who?

US Version

So who took first place, and who came in second?
