  1. The man wearing a brown shirt talks to Mr. Black, hence he cannot be Mr. Black himself, and since they are wearing a different colored shirt than their names, the man speaking must be Mr. Yellow.
    Again using the same fact, Mr. Black must be wearing a yellow shirt and Mr. Brown must be wearing a black shirt.

    Final answers :

    Mr. Yellow : Brown
    Mr. Black : Yellow
    Mr. Brown : Black

    Mr Black: Yellow
    Mr Brown: Black
