Just before the end of the term four high school students were discussing their chances for certain grades. The following remarks contain the gist of their hopes and fears.

Jack: We'll all get different grades. If I get an A, then Lucy will get a D.
Jean: If Lucy gets a C, then Jack will get a D. Jack will get a better grade than Paul.
Lucy: If Jean doesn't get an A, then Jack will get a C. If I get a B, then Paul won't get a D.
Paul: If Lucy gets an A, then I'll get a B. if Jean doesn't get a B, I won't either.
When the final examinations were graded and the term marks made out each of the four passed, and strange as it may seem, each received a grade that checked exactly with all the ideas they had previously expressed.

What grade did each receive?

Nice work!!! Although a bit on the easy side, it was fun to figure it out.

The first line said if Jack got an A, Lucy would get a D. Lucy did get a D, but Jack received a B... Did I miss something?
