Puzzle

US Version

One of these people broke the window. When asked about it, they gave the following statements in order, starting with A.

A: "I didn't do it."
B: "A is telling the truth."
C: "D is lying."
D: "I swear it wasn't me."

The person whose story sounds fishy is the culprit. Who is it?

UK Version

One of these students broke a window, so you ask each of them who did it, in order.

A: "I didn't do it."
B: "A is telling the truth."
C: "D is lying."
D: "It certainly wasn't me."

The person whose story sounds fishy is the culprit. Who is it?

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

Read the statements in order, and pay close attention to what each person is saying.

Read the statements again in order from A to D. One of them is quite suspicious...

The culprit is the person who spoke a little too quickly. If the statements were given in the reverse order from D to A, the culprit might have gotten away with it.

By blaming D so hastily, the culprit ended up incriminating himself!


Solution

Incorrect

Too bad!

Remember, their statements were given in order.

Correct

US Version

Brilliant deduction!

C is indeed the culprit. He said that D was lying before D had ever spoken!

Clearly something's up with C.

UK Version

That's right!

C broke the window.
He said that D was lying, even though D hadn't spoken yet.

It doesn't get any fishier than that!
