Who won?

Isaac and Albert were excitedly describing the result of the Third Annual International Science Fair Extravaganza in Sweden. There were three contestants, Louis, Rene, and Johannes. Isaac reported that Louis won the fair, while Rene came in second. Albert, on the other hand, reported that Johannes won the fair, while Louis came in second.

In fact, neither Isaac nor Albert had given a correct report of the results of the science fair. Each of them had given one correct statement and one false statement. What was the actual placing of the three contestants?


  1. I am going to go out on a limb here by saying that Alberts statement can better lead to the truth. Albert only reported 2 of the people in the contest. If each one made a false and a true statement.

    I think the correct order is J, R, T because Issac would have a true statement then, and that woul dmake Albert true on J being first. Also since. That makes the third person T.

  2. Doh.... J, R, L is the correct order. I don't know who T was.

  3. Very good job Karnov. Johannes won; Rene came in second; Louis came in third.
