# Can you solve this fiendishly tricky puzzle?

Updated:

We know the internet loves a good old brain teaser, and here's the latest one that has a few people stumped.

In fact, the stats show only 36% of people attempting the puzzle got the right answer.

Created by user Puzzlefizzy on site Brilliant.org, the puzzle asks one simple question: "Which box has the car?"

Before answering the question, here are a few things you need to know.

There are three boxes. Each box comes with a statement, but only one of the statements is true.

Statement on box 1: The car is in this box.
Statement on box 2: The car is not in this box.
Statement on box 3: The car is not in box 1.

The key thing here is that only one of the statements is true - but a box with a false statement can still contain the car.

So using the process of elimination, here's how you can work the puzzle out:

If the car is in box one: This would mean the statements on box one and box two would be correct. So the answer can't be box one.

If the car is in box three: This would mean the statements on box two and box three would be correct. So the answer can't be box three.

If the car is in box two: This means that only the statement on box three would be correct. So the answer is box two.

Congratulations if you got it right! And if you are still confused, here's a more detailed explanation:
