Three friends Jim, Sam and Tom were playing in the garden and one of them broke a pot. While enquiring about it the three friends answered as follows:

Jim: I haven’t broken the pot.

Sam: I haven’t broken the pot.

Tom: Sam has broken the pot.

If only one of them is speaking the truth, then who broke the pot?

    Answer: Jim broke the post.
    Explanation:
    Case 1:
    Let us assume Sam is the guilty one.
    In this case both Jim and Tom are speaking the truth, which is not possible.

    Case2:
    Let us assume Tom is the guilty one.
    In this case both Jim and Sam are speaking the truth, which is also not possible.

    Case3:
    Let us assume Jim is the guilty one.
    In this case only Sam is speaking the truth.
