You know three triplets: Eden Thorgan and Kylian.
Eden always tells the truth while Thorgan and Kylian always lie.
Kylian needs to return you 100\$. You meet one of them on London streets and can ask him one three word question.

Which question, will you ask and why?

posted Apr 19, 2017

The question that is to be asked to any one among the three is " Are you Thorgan ? ".

Case 1: if you asked Eden : No
Case 2: if you asked Thorgan : No
Case 3: if you asked Kylian : Yes.

Therefore only when you meet the person that answers "Yes", you will have to ask him the \$100.

P.S ( If there is more to the answer to this question let me now ).
