Question

Guest

The Island of Mediocrity has an election coming up. There are four parties to choose from: the More Beer, Pay Later, Less Filling and Tastes Great parties. Al, Bill and Charlie were speculating about the election.

All was sure it would be either the More Beer Party or the Less Filling Party. Bill wasn't so sure, but was positive it wouldn't be the More Beer Party. Charlie of course had his own opinions - he was sure that neither the Less Filling Party or the Tastes Great Party had a chance. As it turns out, only one of them was right. Who won the election?

My answer is probably wrong (i havent checked the spoilers) but here goes:

choices:

MB

PL

LF

TG

Here's their lists:

Al: MB or LF

Bill: not MB, thus PL or LF or TG

Charlie: not LF or TG, thus MB or PL

simpler to read breakdown of who wins:

A: MB or LF

B: PL or LF or TG

C: MB or PL

Only one of them is right. Since MB, PL and LF are both used twice by two different people, so none of those could win. There's only one thing left. Bill was right- TG win. The Tastes Good Party.
