The three oil-producing countries Qatar, Romania, and Saudi Arabia were the finalists in long jump. Walking around, I heard three comments from three different persons, one from each country:
"Saudi Arabia got the Gold."
"Qatar ended in a higher place than Saudi Arabia".
"Romania was the worst."
A judge commented that whenever a person said anything mentioning his own country, he was right in his beliefs, but if he only spoke about other countries, he was wrong. I didn't know which person was from which country, but I could recognize the Romanian because of his occidental clothes. With help of the judge's comment, I could reason out the final standings. What were they?
(In reply to 4 solutions? Or did I goof?
Nevermind... I forgot that we knew which one was the Romanian. Only solution (D) from my last post is the right one.
Solution (D): Assume comment #1 is by Qatar, therefore FALSE. Assume comment #2 is by Saudi Arabia, therefore TRUE. Assume comment #3 is by Romania, therefore TRUE. Gold to Qatar, Silver to Saudi Arabia, Bronze to Romania.
