And at last, question for "right one"?

I was just assuming, that C is Truth, the rest was easy.
What a coincidence.

The answer is


Left= Wisdom Middle=Lie Right=Truth

You quickly rule out that truth is not left or middle, therefore you know he is on the right. So when the question is posed to truth, you can assume it as the truth and then figure out that middle is now lie and wisdom by process of elimination is on the left.

Meh, I did it like this and it was simple

Left Middle Right (Left cannot be truth otherwise she is lying about her own position)
If Wisdom --- Truth------ Lie X (Cannot work for Truth would be lying)
\
--- Lie-------- Truth :lol: (Widom can lie, Lie can lie, but Truth is being truthful)



If Lie -------- Wisdom-----Truth X (This cannot work for Truth would be lying)

Truth, Lie and Wisdom - Back to the Logic Problems
Three goddesses were sitting in an old Indian temple. Their names were Truth (always true), Lie (always lying) and Wisdom (sometimes lying). There was the following conversation:
Asking the left one: "Who is sitting next to you?"
"Truth," she answered.
Asking the middle one: "Who are you?"
"Wisdom."
And at last question for the right one: "Who is your neighbor?"
"Lie," she replied.
Now it is clear who is who.


Spoiler for Solution

Wisdom--lie--truth;wisdom is presently lying

This was easy but entertaining none the less. A simply process in solving this is open a word pad
and create a table like this

A
B
C

Input each variable ( lie , wisdom, truth) in each table and see if the equation fits. There is only

A TTLLWW
B LWWTTL
C WLTWLT

Not that man possibilities.
