Three sisters are identical triplets. Who was who?

0 votes
227 views

Three sisters are identical triplets. The oldest by minutes is Sarah, and Sarah always tells anyone the truth. The next oldest is Shreya, and Shreya always will tell anyone a lie. Shirin is the youngest of the three. She sometimes lies and sometimes tells the truth.

Vikram, an old friend of the family's, came over one day and as usual he didn't know who was who, so he asked each of them one question.

Vikram asked the sister that was sitting on the left, "Which sister is in the middle of you three?" and the answer he received was, "Oh, that's Sarah."

Vikram then asked the sister in the middle, "What is your name?" The response given was, "I'm Shirin."

Vikram turned to the sister on the right, then asked, "Who is that in the middle?" The sister then replied, "She is Shreya."

This confused Vikram; he had asked the same question three times and received three different answers.

Who was who?

If I said that in three days' time it would be a Thursday, I am sure that most of you would have no difficulty telling me that today was a Monday.

Try this one then. Yesterday was two days before Monday. What day is it today? Yes, you're right again. It's Sunday. Do you get the idea?

Now let's tackle a similar question from The National Mathematics Contest (1991) Paper:

Three days ago, yesterday was the day before Sunday. What day will it be tomorrow?

One day a very rich man was counting his money when he got a very important phone call and he had to leave in a hurry. In his haste he left a one hundred dollar bill on the table. When he came home he noticed the money was missing and he asked the two only other people in the house what happened. The maid said she saw the bill on the table while dusting the library and she hid it under the book. The butler said he got the bill and put it between pages 35 and 36 because he thought it would be safer in the book than under the book. One of them is lying. Who? Why?
