Perhaps you'll enjoy this (non-buddhist) puzzle...
« on: October 31, 2016, 05:36:52 PM »
So I have been reading papers recently on mindfulness and creativity.
One of the papers makes a distinction between insight problem solving
and non-insight problem solving ... and handily supplies some examples
of each.  The problem below.. is one of those examples.

So i present it to you...  since you might enjoy figuring it out.

   Question 3:  Police were convinced that either A, B, C or D had committed
   a crime.  Each of the suspects, in turn, made a statement, however, only
   one of the statements later turned out to be true.  As follows: 
      A said:  "I  didn't do it."
      B said:  "A is lying"
      C said: "B is lying"
      D said: "B did it" 
   After reading the statements above determine:
   (1) Who was telling the truth.
   (2) Who committed the crime.


Please DONT shout out the answer by posting your own answers to this thread.
Instead... PM me and I will quietly tell you if you're right or not.

Other puzzles welcomed :)
