Christmas Tree - Back to the Logic Puzzles
There were 4 angels on a Christmas tree (besides other frou-frou). Two had a blue aureole and two yellow, however none of them can see behind his head. Angel A is on the highest place and he can see angels B and C, which hang below him. Below hangs angel B, who can see only angel C under him. Angel C can't see anybody, because angel D hangs under a twig (nobody can see him and he can not see anyone either).
Which one of them will be the first to guess (Edit: speak his guess out load, deduce and say) what his own aureole is?
To me it looks like this is an edited version of the Headbands riddle: A sees B and C, B sees only C, C sees nothing, and D can be left out of the equation.
So C is like white man 1, B like man 2, and A like man 3, however there are now two white (yellow) and two red (blue) bands (aureoles).
Since the colors of the aureoles are equally devided, there's no clue as to what color will be guessed, but one thing is sure:
Only Angel A has an easy shot to guess something, and that only if he sees two equal colors beneath him.
But if we assume they are all equally smart, then B must realize this and, assuming A keeps silent, be able to guess his color is different from C's
Apart from that, we know nothing...
That is my logic, now I will go look at the solution
Thank you for these excellent riddles! I'm having a hard time with most of them, and I'm considered not to be dumb
