Five suspects are called into police headquarters for questioning. They give the following statements.
A: "One of the five of us is lying."
B: "Two of the five of us are lying."
C: "I know these guys, and three of the five of us are lying."
D: "Don't listen to a word they say. Out of the five of us, four are lying."
E: "All five of us are dirty rotten liars!"
The police only want to release the suspects who are telling the truth. How many people should they let go?
Try to think like a detective and look for inconsistencies between the statements.
Every suspect accused a different number of people. If anyone was telling the truth, it had to be one suspect, no more or less.
The only suspect whose statement fits that condition is D. It looks like he's a free man now.
