1. pOoheaD-from long long time agoooOoooOOo...

3) Some statements are given below:
L says all of my other four friends have money
M says that P said that exactly one among them has money
N says that L said that precisely two among them have money
O says that M said that three of the others have money
P, L and N said that they have money
All the above statement are false. Who has money & who doesn't
have any money?

P, L, and N say taht they have money, however, the statements are false, therefore, they don't have money.

That leaves only M and O left.
Let's test these results.

L says that all his friends has money, appearantly that's wrong because only M and O has money.

M says P says that exactly one amoung them has money, either M is wrong or P is wrong, and either way, that matches our estimation.

N says that L said that 2 among them has money. Either N is wrong or L is wrong. In this case, if we assrue our guess is right, then N is lying.

O says that M said that three of the otehrs have money, that would be wrong too.

As we see, if these statements were all wrong, then that leaves M and O to have the money, and P L N don't have money.
