This is the thirteenth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Margaret. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which pen works using the given clues.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    For starters, remember that "the working pen is to the left of the one that should have the green cap."

    There are three possible arrangements for which this condition can be true:

    ? Green ? ?, ? ? Green ?, or ? ? ? Green.

Hint Two
    Next, remember that "when assembled correctly, all four pens have one white section."

    The only pen without a white section currently is C, so you know that that white cap definitely belongs to pen C.

Hint Three
    From Hints One and Two, you know that the correct order of caps can be either Blue, Green, White, Blue or Blue, Blue, White, Green.

    You can now figure out the correct order from the puzzle's first clue.

Super Hint
    Blue, Green, White, Blue can't be the correct order of caps, because pen D would have the same color cap that it started with. This would violate the puzzle's first clue.

    Therefore, the correct order of caps must be Blue, Blue, White, Green.

    That should give you the answer!
