This logic puzzle for adults will stump even the most astute solvers! Daniel, Emily, Marciano and Christina are all wearing solid-coloured shirts. Their shirts are red, yellow, green and blue. Only the person wearing blue tells the truth, while the other three lie. They make the following statements:
Daniel: “Marciano is wearing red.”
Emily: “Daniel is not wearing yellow.”
Marciano: “Emily is wearing blue.”
Christina: “I will wear blue tomorrow.”
Can you determine each person’s shirt colour, and whether we can expect to see Christina in blue tomorrow?
Answer: Daniel is wearing yellow, Emily is in red, Marciano is in green, and Christina is in blue. Christina will wear a blue shirt again tomorrow.
