After going to the depths of the ocean, you have finally reached it: the ultimate treasure of the world. However, when you go inside the sacred treasure room, you are presented with the Four Clams. They had an argument since one of them has angered Poseidon, the king of the sea. So, they decided that if you can tell who angered Poseidon, then you shall keep the treasure.

Based on the four situations, you should be able to decipher who is the one telling the truth and catch the clam/s who angered the King. Note that First, Second, Third, and Fourth will be called Harrold, Henry, Harry, and Hammy, respectively.

First Clam:

I was just cleaning my pearl, when, I heard Poseidon get really angry. I rushed outside to see the Poseidon angry, shouting "Hammy, Hammy! Why did you kill my beautiful daughter!" I also saw Hammy running away from the palace, from behind.

Second Clam:

I was in the hut, resting when I heard Poseidon get really angry. I just stayed in the hut, because I was really tired, when: "Harrold, why did you kill my beautiful daughter!" It was not me who did it, but neither did Harry do it, for he with me in the hut.

Third Clam:

I was with Henry, resting in the hut as well when I heard Poseidon get really angry. I went out of the hut when Poseidon screamed: "why...kill...daughter". I did not know what he said, but I heard a -"har" sound at the start of the sentence. I was wearing ear-muffs at that time.

Fourth Clam:

I was just in the kitchen, cooking my food for a snack when I heard: "Hammy, Hammy, why did you kill my daughter!" And I was so scared that I was going to be killed, I hid in a sea-bush. I realized Poseidon was not there anymore, so I just left my hiding spot. I definitely did not do it.

So, with all that information, Poseidon being correct, who was the killer.

  • $\begingroup$ There can be no answer, if the first 3 clams claimed that poseidon became angry, none of them can be telling the truth, for if one did then 3 would be telling the truth. That leaves us with 4, but he was telling the truth then so would 1 because both if them claimed poseidon said the same thing, so 4 cannot be telling the truth. So no one is telling the truth is the answer. $\endgroup$ – Prince Deepthinker Nov 29 '20 at 8:42
