1. ## Triplet Brothers

There are 3 triplet brothers. They look identical. The oldest is Karan, he always tells the truth. The second is Shankar, he always tells a lie. The third is Ajay, he either tells the truth or a lie.

Poja went to visit them one day. She was wondering who was who. So she asked each person a question.

He asked the one who was sitting on the left: "Who is the guy sitting in the middle?". The answer was "He is Karan."
He asked the one who was sitting in the middle: "What is your name?". The answer was "I am Ajay."
He asked the one who was sitting on the right: "What is the guy sitting in the middle?". The answer was "He is Shankar."

Poja got really confused. Basically, he asked 3 same questions, but he got 3 different answers. Would you find out who is who for Poja?

2. Since Karan always tells the truth, we can find him first by false logic.

If the one sitting on the left were Karan, he would not say (when asked who the guy in the middle was), "He is Karan". So he can not be Karan.

If the one in the middle is Karan, he should say "I am Karan" (not, I am Ajay). So he can not be Karan.

Karan is therefore the one on the right. His statement was true. Therefore the middle one is Shankar. That leaves Ajay on the left.
