I was invited on a pet show by a fellow colleague. Since I was a bit busy that day, I sent my brother to the show. When he returned back I asked him about the show. He told me that all except two animals were fishes, all except two animals were cats and all except two entries were dogs.

To his statement I was a bit puzzled and I could not understand how many animals of each kind were present in that pet show. Can you tell me?
Solution:

one fish, one cat and one dog.Explanation:The question might appear a bit difficult in the starting but if you analyze the statements, you will realize that it is just a tricky one. All except two were fishes and all except two were cats. With these statements we can assume that two of the animals were not fishes and two were not cats. Now one of those animals that are not fishes can be a cat and one of those two animals that are not cats can be a fish. Just carry out the same analysis for the statement that all except two animals were not dogs and you will come across the result i.e.:In that competition, there was one fish, one cat and one dog.
