### Truth Or Lie Puzzle

Truth Or Lie Puzzle - 1 October

Out of three people (Lavesh, Mayank and Manoj), one of them is a king, one a bureaucrat, and one a thief.

The king always tells the truth, the bureaucrat always lies, and the thief can either lie or tell the truth.

Lavesh says: 'Manoj is a bureaucrat.'
Mayank says: 'Lavesh is a king.'
Manoj says: 'I am the thief.'

Who is the king, who the bureaucrat, and who the thief?

1. Manoj - Bureaucrat
Lavesh - King
Mayank - Thief

2. king -> lavesh
thief -> mayank
bureaucrat -> manoj

3. king: mayank
theif: manoj
bureaucrat: lavesh

1. ur wrong mayank says lavesh is the king and the king can not lie

4. let a= lavesh,b = mayank, c= manoj

if a is king,then c is the bureaucrat and b is the thief.
if b is the king not possible.
if c is the king not possible.
thus a is the king.

then either b is the bureaucrat or c is the bureaucrat.
if b is the bureaucrat, a is the king and c is the thief.(true)
if c is the thief, b is the bureaucrat which implies that a is not the thief
thus c is the bureaucrat and b is the thief.

5. mayank cannot be the king as if he tells truth lavesh becomes the king.
and manoj also cannot be the king i f he tells the truth he him self is a thief
so,,,,LAVESH=king
as lavesh is a king that is true statement mayank is telling truth..so
mayank=thief
manoj=bureaucrat

6. Lavesh is the king, Manoj is the bureaucrat and Mayank is the theif

7. The king : Lavesh
The bureaucrat : Manoj
The thief : Mayank
