Solution

Incorrect

Too bad!

Don't overlook any of the possibilities.

Correct

You got it!

US Version

The "somebody" who wasn't telling the truth was me. I wasn't saving the cake for later at all!

Thinking logically, once you realize that A, B, C, and D are all telling the truth, the person who must be lying is me!

UK Version

"The somebody who ate the cake is me. I wasn't saving it for later at all!"

Thinking logically, once you realise that A, B, C and D are all telling the truth, the person who is lying must be the one who originally complained!
