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?

Based on his own statement, Yellow is not wearing yellow. Since the man in green answers him, he is not the man in green. So he must be wearing brown.

By similar reasoning we realize that the man in green must be Mr Brown, leaving Mr Green to wear the yellow tie.
