There are two boys at an international math contest in December 2013; one is British and one is American. They both write their names, the date, and their answers on the paper. The only problem is that they both have the same name and the papers cannot be told apart.

What is the date?

December 12th, 2013.In America dates are written Month/Day/Year and in Britain Day/Month/Year, so the day and month must be the same so they can be changed around with the date remaining the same.

Why cannot it be the 11th of December, 2013?
In this case, the American will write as 12/11/2013 (MM/DD/YYYY),
while the British will write as 12/11/2013 (DD/MM/YYYY).
As you can see, there is no difference at all.

12/12/2013 as in america month/date/year format is applicable and in british format it is date/month/year

Five girls are not in complete agreement about the date of the Math test.

Andrea says it will be in August, 16th, Monday;
Daniela says it will be in August, 16th, Tuesday;
Fernanda says it will be in September, 17th, Tuesday;
Patricia says it will be in August, 17th, Monday;
Tatiane says it will be in September, 17th, Monday.

Only one of them is completely right. The others guessed at least one of these information correctly: the month, the day or the weekday.

Who is right?
