[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You weren't confounded by that circumlocutory explanation, were you?

    Read the puzzle again from the very beginning.

Hint Two
    Is trying to comprehend all of those conditions too much of a pain?

    If you're thinking that way, here's a word to the wise: this is actually a very simple puzzle...

Hint Three
    Out of the 10 siblings, Luke is the eighth child...

    How many siblings are younger than Luke?

Super Hint
    Out of the 10 siblings, the third-youngest child is the same as the eighth!

    And Luke certainly isn't a girl, so...

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Simplify your thinking as much as possible.

[edit] When Completed

Correct!

At the beginning, Luke was named as the eighth child. The puzzle is asking for the gender of the third child from the bottom, and since there are 10 siblings in total, the third from the bottom is the same as the eighth from the top!

And of course Luke is a boy!

[edit] Solution

The third-youngest child (Luke) is a boy.

[edit] Progress

2170 Picarats and 176 Hint Coins.
