it's a logic puzzle for god's sake! why do people have to be so picky about the unimportant details. You don't need to know what shade of blue it is, or ask over and over again why the angels can talk! admittedly the wording could have been better, but could people just do the puzzle?

Spoiler for my answer

If A doesn't answer then B knows A is the same colour as C so he picks the opposite of C.

The wording should be changed to say that the Angels actually speak their guess out loud. I read "guess" as "silently figuring it out" because "guess" is an internal thought process, at which point I concluded that A was the only one with any hope of figuring out his own color and only when B&C have the same colors as each other.

So, when a guess IS possible, it's only A that can do it... unless the wording is changed.

???????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :huh:

That's exactly what I was thinking. At first I thought that "logically" the only angel with a chance in hell of making a guess was A. I didn't realize they were having a competition to see who came up with the answer first and therefore saying the guess aloud. But then again, I've never had a speaking angel on my tree either.

lol i agree with that :lol:

If A does not speak out, B will be able to guess that his aureole is he colour other than that of C.


i agree its the only thing that could possibly work

D is there so it is possible for all aureoles, i guess, so that there are two of both colours.

Calm down, put your glasses on areola/areolae which surrounds the mountain/s.
If you don't kick them out - which method do you usually employ?

Actually don't answer, I wish I hadd'nt but i started so I'll finnish.

if B and C have same color then only A can guess right, otherwise it will be a lucky guess.
Is there some other way out?
