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?

(Sourced from a textbook. The solutions at the end are not there because I did not purchase it. )

Therefore, C broke the vase
