Four golfers named Mr. Black, Mr. White, Mr. Brown and Mr. Blue were competing in a tournament. The caddie didn't know their names, so he asked them. One of them, Mr. Brown, told a lie.
The 1st golfer said "The 2nd Golfer is Mr. Black."
The 2nd golfer said "I am not Mr. Blue!"
The 3rd golfer said "Mr. White? That's the 4th golfer."
And the 4th golfer remained silent. Which one of the golfers is Mr. Blue?

Old Mr. Smith was found dead in his study by young Jack. Jack recounted his dismal discovery to Detective Anderson, who happened to be around the scene.
"I was walking by Mr. Smith's house when I thought I would just pop in for a visit. I noticed his study light was on and I decided to peek in from the outside to see if he was in there. There was frost on the window, so I had to wipe it away to see inside. That is when I saw his body. So I kicked in the front door to confirm my suspicions of foul play. I called the police immediately afterward."
With a clue from Detective Anderson, the police officers immediately arrested Jack for the murder of Mr. Smith.
How could the detective tell Jack was lying?
A man has three daughters. A second, intelligent man, asked him the ages of his daughters. The first man told him that the product of their ages (them all multiplied together,) was 36. After thinking the second man was unable to find the answer and asked for another clue. The first man replies the sum of their ages is equal to his house door number. Still the second man was unable to answer and asked for another clue. The first man told him that his youngest daughter had blue eyes, and suddenly second man gave the correct answer. What were the ages of the first man's 3 children?
Everything the 2 men say here is a clue:
3 daughters, product of their ages is 36, then he gives him an estimate that the second person knows but we do not (the house door number), when the second man needs one more piece of information, the first man tells him the youngest has blue eyes.
So to solve, you want to write down all the 3 numbers whose product is 36, then to find the last hint, knowing that there IS a youngest child...
The ages are 6, 6 and 1.
to solve, you want to write down all the 3 numbers whose product is 36.
1, 1, 36
1, 3, 12
1, 4, 9
1, 2, 18
1, 6, 6
2, 2, 9
2, 3, 6
3, 3, 4
Here's the hardest part, the fact that the doorbell clue was not enough to solve the puzzle means that if we add up each of these options, we get at least two results that are the same, and we need more information to decide which one.
13: 1, 6, 6
13: 2, 2, 9
Then to find the last hint, knowing that there IS a youngest child, means the smallest child doesn't have another sibling in the same age, meaning that 2,2,9 doesn't work, and we are left with 1, 6 and 6.
