This is the fifty-third puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Agnes. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which brother is lying.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Only one person is lying here, so let's take a closer look at their statements.

    If you assume A is lying, then A didn't eat the fish. If that's true, does it support the other two brothers' statements, or does it make someone else a liar?

    Try working things out logically like this in order to find your answer.

Hint Two
    If B is lying, doesn't that also mean that what A said is...less than accurate?

    Surely by now you've realized that more than one person could have helped eat this fish, right?

Hint Three
    Here's a big hint for you.

    Not one, but two uncouth individuals took part in the consumption of your fish. Think about who those two have to be.

    Now that you know the truth behind what happened, look at the three brothers' statements again and see whose testimony doesn't fall in line with what you know to be true. There's your answer.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Remember, you're looking for the liar in the bunch, not the person who ate your fish.

[edit] When Completed

The liar here is C. A and C split your dinner and each ate half.

The answer becomes clear when you realize that if A was lying, B must be lying as well. The same thing happens when you assume that B is the liar. Therefore, the only possible answer is that C is lying, a scenario that only works if C actually did eat some of the fish.

[edit] Solution


C is the liar.

[edit] Progress

1775 Picarats and 99 Hint Coins.
