Manoj - Bureaucrat

ReplyDeleteLavesh - King

Mayank - Thief

king -> lavesh

ReplyDeletethief -> mayank

bureaucrat -> manoj

king: mayank

ReplyDeletetheif: manoj

bureaucrat: lavesh

ur wrong mayank says lavesh is the king and the king can not lie

Deletelet a= lavesh,b = mayank, c= manoj

ReplyDeleteif a is king,then c is the bureaucrat and b is the thief.

if b is the king not possible.

if c is the king not possible.

thus a is the king.

then either b is the bureaucrat or c is the bureaucrat.

if b is the bureaucrat, a is the king and c is the thief.(true)

if c is the thief, b is the bureaucrat which implies that a is not the thief

thus c is the bureaucrat and b is the thief.

mayank cannot be the king as if he tells truth lavesh becomes the king.

ReplyDeleteand manoj also cannot be the king i f he tells the truth he him self is a thief

so,,,,LAVESH=king

as lavesh is a king that is true statement mayank is telling truth..so

mayank=thief

manoj=bureaucrat

Lavesh is the king, Manoj is the bureaucrat and Mayank is the theif

ReplyDeleteThe king : Lavesh
