Al says Beth is lying, Beth says Joe is lying, Joe accuses both of them of lying.

Who is telling the truth?


Answer

Beth.

Joe can't be telling the truth because then
Beth would be lying, and Al's statement (which is also a lie) would mean that Beth is telling the truth. These two facts contradict each other. Therefore Joe is lying, which means that Beth is telling the truth, which in turn means that Al is lying.
