This is the thirty-ninth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Prima. In order to solve this puzzle, you must give each child the correct amount of strawberries corresponding to their requirements.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Start by thinking about the relationship between the four shares. That will make it easier to work out how many strawberries to give each child.

Hint Two
    Take a look at the statements. Can you work out who wants the most strawberries?

Hint Three
    It's obvious from the children's statements that both C and D want fewer strawberries than A. Now, since A states that he'd like one fewer strawberry than B, you know that B wants the most strawberries.

    In fact, it should be clear that B wants the maximum possible number of strawberries: nine.

Super Hint
    You know from Hint 3 that B wants nine strawberries. Child A specifically asks for one fewer than B, which is eight strawberries. C wants five fewer than A, meaning three strawberries.

    Now you just need to work out how many strawberries to give D. Since you already know how many A wants, this should be no problem!

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Read each child's statement carefully once again.

[edit] When Completed

Juicy!

The most strawberries any child can get is nine, and it's pretty obvious from B's statement that she's a huge fan of strawberries.

If B gets nine strawberries, A gets eight, C gets three and D gets four.

[edit] Solution
