This is the seventy-fourth 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 kid threw the ball through the window using the statements as clues.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    This one's sort of a pain, isn't it?

    The kid who broke the window is certainly lying, but you can't forget that a number of the other children might be lying as well.

    Keep that in mind as you solve this puzzle.

Hint Two
    We've already established that the child who actually broke the window lied. Therefore, the child who broke the window must have denied breaking the window when confronted. In other words, B couldn't have broken the window, and D must be telling the truth about B. By the way, D didn't do it either.

Hint Three
    If what A said is true, then C must also be telling the truth. That would mean we had four honest children on our hands, which we know to be false.

    Either A or C had to have broken the window.

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed


Remember, the child who broke the window may not be the only one lying!

[edit] When Completed

Good job!

B and C were also lying about what happened even though they themselves didn't break the glass. Make sure you give those two a good scolding as well!

[edit] Solution

A broke the glass.

[edit] Progress

2665 Picarats and 130 Hint Coins.
