Brainteaser- you think you are smart? Try solving this puzzle

This puzzle was created by Puzzlefizzy on site Brilliant.org.  You have to decide which box a car is in.

The brainteaser features three boxes, each with a drawing of a car on the outside. 39f7c11f00000578-3895620-image-a-4_1478042071307

Each box is labelled with a statement, but only one of the statements is true. The boxes have the following statements:

Box 1: The car is in this box.

Box 2: The car is not in this box.

Box 3:  The car is not in box 1.’

Although it may not seem like it, this gives the reader just enough information to determine which box has the car in it.

And only 36 per cent of people on Brilliant’s website have got the puzzle right, with the rest selecting the wrong answer.

So what’s the correct answer?

Only 36 per cent of people on Brilliant.org, where the puzzle is posted, have got it right

The car is in box two!39f7c11700000578-3895620-image-m-16_1478043092774

You can work out the answer from a process of elimination. Only one of the statements on the boxes is true.

If the car was in box one, this would mean that the statements on box one and box two would be correct, so the answer can’t be box one.

If the car was in box three, both the statements on box two and box three would be correct, so the answer can’t be box three.

But, because the car is in box two, this means that only the statement on box three is correct.

It’s a little mind blending, but logically eliminating the other boxes means you can work out the answer.

Lol!!!
