 ← Miscalculation Three Ladies The Lion's Escape →

Three Ladies is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box.

## Puzzle

What are the names of these three ladies?

A: "The woman next to me is Judy."

B: "I'm Ellie. Pleasure to meet yal!"

C: "The woman next to me? Her name's Anna."

Keep track of what each lady said to help you deduce their names. There's a catch, though. While Judy is always truthful, Ellie occasionally lies, and Anna tells fibs every chance she gets.

Arrange the nameplates at the bottom of the screen so that each plate correctly labels its owner.

## Hints

Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

The other two ladies keep talking about B. Who could she possibly be? Remember that Judy never lies.

## Solution

### Correct

That's right!

A is Ellie, B is Anna and C is Judy.

A says that B is Judy, so you know that A can't be our honest friend, Judy. B claims to be Ellie, so we know this person can't be Judy either.

Therefore, you know that C must be Judy and if that's so, B must be Anna. With everyone else now identified, you can be sure that A is Ellie.
