Melissa, Jessica, Sandy and Nicole were working on the computer. Suddenly, I heard a crash and then lots of shouts. I rushed in to find out what was going on, finding the computer monitor on the ground, surrounded with broken glass! Sandy and Jessica spoke almost at the same time:
Jessica said, “It wasn’t me!”
Sandy said, “It was Nicole!”
Melissa said, “No, it was Sandy!”
Nicole said, “Sandy’s a liar.”
Only one of them was telling the truth, so who broke the monitor?

One murder happened in a village. A police officer instructed two police constables to go to the crime scene, investigate and prepare an preliminary incident report.
It was already past midnight and the crime scene was far away from the police station. The two constables decided not to travel to the crime scene and came up with a fake incident report instead. Below is the report.
When we reached the spot, the door was open and one man aged between 40-45 was found dead lying on the floor. The light and fan were switched on. There were some items found on a table:
– One open bottle of poison,
– One half filled drinking water bottle,
– One fountain pen,
– One newspaper was flipped open, pages 9 and 10 facing each other,
– One table top calendar showing June 20,
– One notebook.
The person committed suicide by drinking the poison.
After reading the incident report, the police officer immediately knew that it was fake. How did he know?

Answer : The page numbers of newspapers, when flipped open, are always even-odd, e.g.2-3, 4-5, etc.
So the police report cannot be true, as the pages 9 and 10 of the newspaper cannot be facing each other. Page 10 of the newspaper will be at the back of page 9.
