Colored hats (Posted on 2002-05-08) Difficulty: 3 of 5
There were three men in a line (facing forward) so they can only see the man (or men) in front of them. There are also five hats, two black and three white. Each man is wearing one of the hats.

When the man at the back of the line was asked "Do you know your hat color?", he replied "No". When the man that was second in line was then asked "Do you know your hat color?" he replied "No". When the man at the front of the line was asked "Do you know your hat color?" he replied "Of course".

What color of hat was the man at the front of the line wearing?

I disagree: the only one who must be wearing a white hat, is the first one; the other two may wear any color.
