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

Wisdom--lie--truth;wisdom is presently 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?"
And at last question for the right one: "Who is your neighbor?"
"Lie," she replied.
Now it is clear who is who.Spoiler for SolutionTruth, Lie and Wisdom - solution
Let’s assign a letter to each goddess. We get these sentences.
1. A says: B is Truth.
2. B says: I am Wisdom.
3. C says: B is Lie.
First sentence hints that A is not Truth. Second sentence is not said by Truth either, so C is Truth. Thus the third sentence is true. B is Lie and A is Wisdom.
