Question

Mother baked 12 delicous, cream-filled cupcakes. She was going to give 3 each to her 4 children, James, Joe, John and Joshua. That was until a problem ensued. Someone stole all the cupcakes, gobbled them up, and didn't leave behind a single trace. Not one crumb! So, Mother called up all the boys and asked them in order if they were the culprits. This is what they said:

James: ''I didn't eat them!''

Joe: ''James is telling the truth''

John: ''Joshua is lying!''

Joshua ''I did not eat them!''

Text states the replies were given in order. John answered before Joshua and therefore could not know what he would say so he must be the culprit and the liar.

If john knew that joshua ate them and he knew joshua doesnt want to get in trouble and would say he didnt eat the cupcakes. John didnt want to seem like a teller and just said joshua will lie
