This is the seventy-fifth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Gustav. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out what place each racer came.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    B didn't make it to the final. In other words, she lost the first race, so she's one of the two people competing for third.

Hint Two
    It seems D lost the race with B. From Hint 1, you know that B lost the first race and was competing in the third-place runoff.

    In other words, the race in which B beat D had to have been the runoff.

Hint Three
    A won one race and lost another, and C says she beat A. So that means A's one loss was in the race against C.

    You know from Hint 2 that B and D were competing in the third-place runoff, so that means A and C had to have been competing in the final. So who beat whom?

Super Hint
    You know from Hint 2 that B won in the third-place runoff against D. So B came in third, and D came in fourth. Furthermore, you know from Hint 3 that the final was between A and C, and that C won in the end.

    So who took first place, and who came in second?
