Ties (Posted on 2002-05-29) Difficulty: 2 of 5
There are 3 gentlemen in a meeting: Mr. Yellow, Mr. Green and Mr. Brown. They are wearing yellow, green and brown ties. Mr. Yellow says:

"Did you notice that the color of our ties are different from our names?"

The person who is wearing the green tie says:

"Yes, you are right!"

Who is wearing what color of tie?

Im no genius but I got this one! If they dont wear the color tie of there name than Mr. Yellow can't wear the yellow tie. Since someone wearing a green tie responds, Mr. Yellow isn't wearing the green tie either. Mr. Yellow must have on the Brown tie. Now we have Mr.Green and Mr. Brown. The ties that are left are yellow and brown. Since brown can't be wearing brwon he must have Green, therefore Mr. Green is wearing the yellow. (it took longer to type the solution then to come up with it :-))
