Check out the puzzle below. Don’t scroll to the end unless you give up. And no cheating!
The instructions want you to use the statements to determine which box holds the car.
Can it be box one? No. The statements below boxes one and three would be correct. But our instructions tell us only one statement can be true.
Can it be box three? No. The statements in boxes two and three would be true if the car was in box three, so it can’t be there.
So, through process of elimination, box two holds the car. This means the only true statement is the one below three that says the car isn’t in the first box!
