The Three Friends

Another one of Maurice’s favourite puzzles presented by Maurice the Cat.

Maurice has three friends: Mr Carpenter, Mr Mason, and Mr Painter who are engaged in a different occupation. By a strange coincidence one is a carpenter, one is a mason and one is a painter; but their names do not necessarily match their occupations.

Assuming only one of the following statements is true, can you deduce who does what?

  • Mr Carpenter is not a painter
  • Mr Mason is not a carpenter
  • Mr Carpenter is a carpenter
  • Mr Mason is not a painter.
