Four students Art, Ben, Cal and Don competed in a series of four quiz contests involving English, General knowledge, Logic, and Math. They are now wondering about the outcome.
Art thinks Don won the Logic award.
Ben thinks Cal won the English prize.
Cal thinks Art did not win the Math title.
Don thinks Ben won the General Knowledge trophy.
