Five children A, B, C, D, and E are fighting over who broke the precious vase. Here are their statements:
A: D broke it.
D: A lied when he said I broke it.
B: E broke it.
E: B broke it.
C: I didn't break it.
If only one statement is true, who broke the vase?
I answered but i have decided to hide my answer as this is obviously a school competition homework question.
Wait.. how do you decide if a question is school comp?
Cus this isnt... do you think all other questions on this forum are kids making them up?
This is a textbook question - I did not purchase the solutions part.
I think it is a classroom competition question because it has been asked by about a dozen different guests in a matter of about an hour.
People are obviously cheating. It was most likely a fun exercise and there was some small reward for the first on to present the answer. Or maybe it was in a bigger competition.
No matter, there is no doubt in my mind that ALL of the askers are cheating.
