Who’s who?

Harry and Fred are called Smith and Jones, but I am not sure if it’s Harry Smith and Fred Jones, or Harry Jones and Fred Smith. Given that two of the following statements are false, what is Harry’s surname?

  1. Harry’s surname is Jones.
  2. Harry’s surname is Smith.
  3. Fred’s surname is Smith.

This is called learning to think !! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Harry Smith and Fred Jones.
    In this case, only option 2 is correct whereas in the other one, options 1 and 3 are correct. Given one statement is true, option one is the right answer
