Professor Merle White of the mathematics department, Professor Leslie Black of philosophy, and Jean Brown, a young stenographer who worked in the university's office of admissions, were lunching together.

"Isn't it remarkable," observed the lady, "that our last names are Black, Brown and White and that one of us has black hair, one brown hair and one white."

"It is indeed," replied the person with black hair, "and have you noticed that not one of us has hair that matches his or her name?"

"By golly, you're right!" exclaimed Professor White.

If the lady's hair isn't brown, what is the color of Professor Black's hair?

professor black is the lady, and so if her hair isn't brown, it can't be black and so must be white. prof black therefore has white hair.

You're right but you haven't told me why Prof. Black is the lady.

Leslie can also be a mans name. Jean can also be a mans or womans name.

along with the lady, the person with black hair speaks, so he/she cannot be prof black. prof white is also mentioned, meaning the person with black hair is prof. brown, and so only prof. black is left to be the lady. if she doesn't have brown hair, she must have white . Phew! there ya go!

Umm, I'm sure you've got the right answer in your head but you're having trouble expressing it. Try doing it in reverse order.

(The answer)
Spoiler:
From the conversation Professor White's hair can't be white (for then it would match his or her name), nor can it be black because he (or she) replies to the black-haired person. Therefore it must be brown. If the lady's hair isn't brown, then Professor White is not a lady.

The remark from the black-haired person can't be from Professor Black (for then the color of hair would match his or her name) and can't be from Professor White as well (because the remark prompts an exclamation from White). Therefore the black-haired person is Jean Brown.

Based on this the first statement from the lady is made by Professor Black. Her hair can't be black or brown, so she must have white hair.

There's a man who lives on the 15th and top floor of a block of flats. He hates climbing stairs and yet when coming up he only takes the lift to the 9th floor and he climbs the rest. Why does he do this?

I have exactly 5 children, all different ages.
They are all considered normal.
None of them are transexual, or anything like that.
And yet, half of them are girls.

How?
