    Handel has been killed and Beethoven is on the case. He has interviewed the four suspects and their statements are shown below. Each suspect has said two sentences. One sentence of each suspect is a lie and one sentence is the truth. Help Beethoven figure out who the killer is.

    Joplin: I did not kill Handel. Either Grieg is the killer or none of us is.
    Grieg: I did not kill Handel. Gershwin is the killer.
    Strauss: I did not kill Handel. Grieg is lying when he says Gershwin is the killer.
    Gershwin: I did not kill Handel. If Joplin did not kill him, then Grieg did.

    Strauss is the killer!
    Strauss is lying when he says that he did not kill Handel but he is telling the truth when he says "Grieg is lying when he says Gershwin is the killer."

    It is either Strauss alone ...
    Started by assuming Joplin's first sentence as true and ran through the senario --> Strauss
    If Jolin's first sentence is false, it turns out to be a group murder with everyone BUT Strauss with Gershwin's second sentence being true, which then doesn't make sense for a group murder... soooo Strauss did it alone =)

    Murderer is STRAUSS

    all among greig told with confidence that greshwin is the killer. Then he perfectly knows who is killer.
    Straws didnt point dought on any one. But informs someone is lying.
    Now we get two of them who knows killer.
    Consider greigs statement greshwin is killer is true then greshwin is out of dought.
    Now strauss statement. He pointing out someone that dont have dought but he confirmly pointed.
    Then we get conclusion greg knows strauss murdered but he is lying.
