### Tweleve statements Puzzle

Which of the statements in the box are true?

Okay, this one is hard to unravel...

# 11 is grammatically incorrect. The subject (1 statement (of many)) is singular and should therefore be accompanied by a singular verb.

It is internally consistent if statements 1 and 5 are true. All other statements except #8 are false. Statement 8 is indeterminate but the puzzle does not prohibit this.

1,3,4,6,7,9 are true.
2,5,8,10,11,12 are false.

1,2,3,6,9,11 T is another possible solution. There is no right answer. Just many logically inconsistent ones.

1,2,3,6,9,11 is not a possible solution since there is a contradiction: 2 is true but out of the last three statements, only two are true.

1,3,4,6,7,9 cannot all be true - 9 says that Exactly 3 of the first 6 statements are true, so 1,3,4, and 6 cannot all be true.

1st statement is true

Only the first statement is true.

I'm pretty sure it's 1, 5, 6, 9 and 11 that are true.

So 1 is correct, 2 is false, 4 is false, 7 is false, 8 is false, 11 is true, 3 and 6 have to be false because they are dependent upon the other and don't work together. 5 is correct, 9 is false, 10 and 12 are false, but 11 is correct.

@darby: That's inconsistent. If 11 is true then 7,8,9 can't be all false.

1 3 4 6 7 11 are all true

I got 1, 5, 6, 9, and 11 as true also.
