• The scout telling the truth is the Teuton Scout.
Presumably, the king must protect treasury number 2.

(it is impossible that the Roman Equites Legati is telling the truth because the scout and pathfinder statements are mutually exclusive, and if the Gallic Pathfinder is telling the truth, it implies that robbers will attack two villages instead of one.)

Thanks for your consideration

• Answer:

The Scout tells the truth.

---------

Explanation:

1. The Pathfinder says that the robbers will attack treasury number 1.
2. The Equites Legati says that they won’t attack treasury number 2.
3. The Scout says that what he knows for sure is that there won’t be an attack on treasury number 1.

1 OR 3 must be TRUE. So 2 must be FALSE.

If 2 is FALSE then there will be an attack on treasury number 2.
This means that there will be NO attack on treasury number 1.

• The Scout said the truth and they will attack the treasury n. 2 because it's not true that they won't attack the treasury n.2 and that they will attack the treasury n. 1

if the pathfinder said the truth also the equites legati would have said the truth but only one said the truth
If the equites legati said the truth, also the scout or the pathfinder had to say the truth

• 3. The Scout says that what he knows for sure is that there won’t be an attack on treasury number 1.

• That will be treasury 2 that is attacked, and the third (3) statement is correct.
If the robbers attack treasury 1 the first and second statement is correct while the third is incorrect.
If the robbers attack treasury 2 the third statement will be correct, while the first and second statement will be incorrect.
If the robbers attack treasury 3 the second and third statement will be true while the first will be incorrect.

This leaves the third statement as the only possibly true statement.

• 1. The Pathfinder says that the robbers will attack treasury number 1.

this is the right answer.
