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?

Mr. Yellow is wearing the brown tie, because he isn't wearing his name color (yellow), and the person with the green tie replied to his statement, excluding green. That leaves Mr. Brown and Mr. Green, and the green and yellow tie. Now, since Mr. Green isn't wearing green, he is wearing the yellow tie, leaving Mr. Brown with the green tie. Final Score:

Mr. Yellow: Brown tie

Mr. Green: Yellow tie

Mr.Brown: Green Tie
