The Colored Caps

The Puzzler

RAY: Here's the answer. If Mr. White says nobody is wearing a cap of his own color that obviously includes him, so he can be wearing either a green cap or a brown cap. But not a white one.

And he can't be wearing the green cap because the guy with the green cap spoke up. So Mr. White must be wearing what? The brown cap!

And Mr. Green? He's got to be wearing the white cap, and Mr. Brown has got to be wearing? The green cap! It was easy; I told you it was for eighth graders! Do we have a winner?

TOM: Yes we do. Our winner this week is Bob Sherwood from Burghill, Ohio. Way to go Bob!
