Jayant said, " It was Hemant or Tapesh".
Hemant said, " Neither Eeshan nor I did it".
Tapesh said, " Both of you are lying".
Dheeraj said, " No, one of them is lying, the other is speaking the truth".
Eeshan said, " No, Dheeraj, that is not true".
When Mr. Vinod was consulted, he said, " Three of these boys are always truthful but two will lie every time".

Tapesh stole the apple.
Either Dheeraj or Eeshan lie.
That leaves 1 other liar.
If Tapesh speaks the truth, both Jayant and Hemant are lying, giving 3 liars.
Therefore Tapes is lying and Jayant and Hemant are speaking the truth.
Tahe means Tapesh stole the appel.

Today little Farhan and his mother visited a school and a family. While they were there, they saw a band, checked out the litter, and noticed a sleuth standing nearby. Later that day, they watched an army and a troop for quite a while, and noticed they were standing beside a battery. As they were leaving to go home that day, Farhan and his mother saw a party just near the den and were indeed very happy.
