This is the seventy ninth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Subject 3. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine who the fastest swimmer is.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Let's narrow down the choices. The smallest person says "I'll finish fourth." Take a close look at the swimmers. Swimmer A is the smallest, so he will finish in fourth place.

Hint Two
    "The second-fastest swimmer is standing next to the biggest person."

    OK, well, B is clearly the biggest of the swimmers. So A or C fits the above statement. However, you already know that A will come in fourth, so C must come in second.

Hint Three
    "I may have the biggest body, but I'm certainly not the fastest swimmer."

    This must be B's statement. Since we've already figured out second and fourth place, that just leaves first, third, and fifth. B clearly states that he's not the fastest, so he must be third or fifth. Now there are just two places left to figure out!

Super Hint
    "I've got the sweetest swimsuit, but I'm no match for big B..."

    It's a matter of opinion, of course, but the only one really wearing a flashy swimsuit is E.

    You learned that B must be finish third or fifth. Based on E's statement, you can now say that B is third and E is fifth.

    Just one left, now. Who is it?
