Smart Guy

Aaron, Brian, and Colin are studying Chemistry and Physics.

Aaron says truthfully:
1. Only one of us is smart
2. If I am not smart, I will not pass Chemistry.

Brian says truthfully:
3. The smart man is the only man not to pass one of the two subjects. (Clarification: This does not mean the not-smart guys passed both subjects and the smart guy failed one. This means that one of the subjects, not telling which, was passed by both non-smart guys and failed by the smart guy… weird right?)
4. If I am smart, I will pass Chemistry

Colin says truthfully:
5. If I am smart, I will pass Physics.
6. If I am not smart, I will not pass Physics.

Which one of the three men is smart?

    Nope, keep trying.

  • I think it’s Aaron because he didn’t mention about Physics and said that if he’s not smart he won’t pass Chemistry.

    You are correct, Emeline.

    Aaron is the smart guy, he failed Chemistry and the other two passed.

    You are today’s winner.

    how can it be Aaron? he said if he was not smart he would not pass chemistry. Therefore if he did not pass chemistry, he is not smart, right?
