    who is who

    hi

    There are 3 triplet brothers. They look identical. The oldest is John, he always tells the truth. The second is Jack, he always tells a lie. The third is Joe, he either tells the truth or a lie.

    Jimmie Dean went to visit them one day. He was wondering who was who. So he asked each person a question.

    He asked the one who was sitting on the left: "Who is the guy sitting in the middle?". The answer was "He is John."
    He asked the one who was sitting in the middle: "What is your name?". The answer was "I am Joe."
    He asked the one who was sitting on the right: "What is the guy sitting in the middle?". The answer was "He is Jack."

    Jimmie Dean got really confused. Basically, he asked 3 same questions, but he got 3 different answers. Would you find out who is who for Jimmie?


    bye

    I agree with Barbie...
    From the first answer we will know that John cannot sit on left... Because he himself cannot say that he is in the middle, so john position should be middle or right.
    From the second answer again we can say john cannot sit on middle too... because he cannot lie himself as joe... So Johns position is Right...
    So John said is right Jack in the middle...(ie last answer)
    And Joe in the left...

    Joe in the left
    jack in middle
    john in the right

    Thanks
