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?

We know that Mr Yellow was not wearing a yellow tie because of his statement. He also was not wearing the green tie because the one wearing the green tie agreed to his statement.

Therefore, Mr Yellow was wearing a brown tie. Mr Green was wearing a yellow tie. And Mr Brown was wearing the green tie.
