At a party, four people played a game. Three of them sat one behind the other, so that Abe saw Bill and Cal, and Bill only saw Cal, who sat in front and saw nobody else.
Dave had 5 hats which he showed to his three friends. Three of the hats were blue and two were red.
Now Dave placed a hat on the head of each of his three friends, putting aside the remaining two hats.
Then he asked Abe what color his hat was.
Abe said he couldn’t tell.
