1) In a murder case there are four suspects P,Q,R,S.
Each of them
makes a statement. They are
p: “I had gone to the theatre with S at the time of
q: “I was playing cards with P at the time of the

are contradictory. thus either P or S is murederer. as
q is not murderer, he is tellinjg truth that P was
with him. hence S is murderer.

journey in two
travelling parties. For security, each travelling

and two other
knights and travels by the northern route, the other
memnbers of this party besides U must be
