On a blank piece of paper, draw a large rectangle and inside the rectangle write these three statements [A] [B] and [C] exactly as they appear.

A: In this box are 3 statements
B: Only 1 of these statements is true.
C: I am the greatest.

Now your task is to find out which if any of these three statements are true!


Answer

Since there are three statements it is possible that none, 1 ,2 or all 3 are true.
Since [A] is clearly true it cannot be none.
[B] cannot be true because then [B] would be the only true statement and we already know [A] is true.
Thus it cannot be only 1 that is true.

It clearly is not all 3 since we just found [B] is false.
That only leaves 2 true statements, namely [A] and [C].

Congratulations, you have just proven that you are the greatest!
