Today I am off to Manchester today to host part of QED – if you see me there, please wave. OK, the puzzle….
The people who live on the next street are strange. Those who live at odd numbered houses always lie, and those who live at even numbered houses always tell the truth.
The other day I met a group of three people from the next street and asked them whether they were from odd or even numbered houses. The first one murmured something that was too soft to hear. The second replied, “He said he was from an odd numbered house.” The third then said to the second, “You are a liar!”
Did the third person live at an odd or even numbered house?
As ever, please do NOT post your answers, but do say if you think you have solved the puzzle and how long it took. Solution on Monday.
