    The mystery of the broken window.

    Some of you maybe aware that Wise Old Olly Owl is the magistrate at the Forest Court and
    invariably has to deal with disputes amongst the animals.

    A big dispute had taken place when a window was smashed window during the annual cricket match
    and Olly was asked to investigate and find out who was responsible. The problem was that
    he knew that three of the statements were untrue.


    The Squirrels: "The Rabbits did it."

    The Rabbits: "The Squirrels did it."

    Wood Pigeons: "The Rabbits are telling the truth."

    The Foxes: "Wood Pigeons are not lying."

    Who broke the window?

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">The first statement is the only true one: the Rabbits smashed the window. The other three statements are mutually dependent: if any one of them is true, the others are true too.</span hide>
