"Here's an easy one for you," said Scheherazade. "Good" said the Sultan. "I'm not in the mood for thinking too much this evening." "A theft has occurred. Someone has stolen a jewel from Ali's store. There are three suspects, Nedim, Suad and Rashad, one of whom is guilty. The guilty party's statement is true, the other two are false. Here are the statements:
Nedim: Suad stole the jewel.
Suad: What Nedim says is true.
Rasheed: What Nedim says is false.
Inspector Ahmed Marouda, of the Baghdad police, soon finds the culprit. Who was it?"
