3 painters from 3 different companies were painting a billboard. The men had 3 different last names: Red, Blue and Green. The 3 companies they came from had the same names as the workers. As they were painting, they started talking. "It is funny that all of our last names are different from our companies' names." said Mr. Red. "Yes, very strange." replied the man from Blue & Co.

Who worked for which company?



Answer

Mr. Red worked for Green & Co.
Mr. Green worked for Blue & Co.
Mr. Blue worked for Red & Co.

Although at first it seems impossible, we know Mr. Red couldn't work for the red company. He also couldn't work for Blue & Co. because he was talking to the man from Blue & Co. Since we now know that Mr. Red is from Green & Co. it is easy.

Although this is a good teaser, this should really be in logic, not trick.

Pretty easy since really only three factors to work with and clues gave it away. Good fun though. enjoyable.
