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?
OK, I hate to nit pick, but nowhere in the puzzle was it stated that the ties were the same colors as the name. For all we know, Mr yellow is wearing a purple and orange paisley!
Anyway, since Mr yellow can't be wearing yellow, and we know he's not wearing green (unless he is talking to himself), we know he is wearing brown. So Brown is wearing green and Green is wearing yellow.
