Four contestants and three statements puzzle

  1. Jan 4, 2010 #1
    Four contestants E, F, G, and H ran for a contest. When asked by a common acquaintance, three spectators A, B, C made the following statements regarding the final results.

    1. A said, "Either E or H is the winner."

    2. B said, "E is not the winner."

    3. C said, "Neither H nor G is the winner."

    It was found that precisely one amongst A, B and C had made a correct statement.

    Who made the correct statement and who was the winner?
