    C
    Logically, only A, B and C can be lying.

    The puzzle – to be precise, the ‘assumption’ part – needs rephrasing. “only 3 of them lie” means that only 3 of them has a history / habit of lying, but it doesn’t imply that they ALWAYS lie. We have to do the additional bit of assumption to conclude the answer. Otherwise, the information provided is insufficient to reach a conclusion.
