Puzzle

US Version

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

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?

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

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

US Version

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

UK Version

Listen carefully to their testimonies, in order...

US Version

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

UK Version

Look again at the content of each testimony and the order in which they are given.

Do that, and you'll soon notice that one of them is saying something not quite right.

US Version

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.

UK Version

The culprit is the one who spoke in haste. If you'd heard the testimonies in the opposite order, the culprit might never have given themselves away.

US Version

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

UK Version

The culprit gave the game away while trying to pin the blame on D.


Solution

Incorrect

US Version

Too bad!

Remember, their statements were given in order.

UK Version

Too bad.

Ask them again, "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!
