# Grumpy and Friends

OrbitalPower

## Main Question or Discussion Point

Bashful, Dopey, and Sneezy are arguing about how many friends Grumpy has. Bashful claims that Grumpy has at least fifty friends. Dopey says that Grumpy certainly doesn't have that many, whereas Sneezy remarks that Grumpy must have at least one friend.

If what only one of the three is saying is true, how many friends does Grumpy actually have?

I thought that the answer to this might not appear so quickly. Some people are too smart for their own good.

That's me all over. Way too smart.

Yes. the riddle still remains unanswered though. Since the IQ 130+ riddle was solved in a shorter amount of time, does that means that this one is IQ 140+? :rofl:

Ah, then I will wait a little bit and post a complete answer when it reached 160 or so. Is it growing logarithmically ?

Since Bashful, Dopey and Sneezy hate Grumpy's guts, who knows?

Zero. It is the only answer wherein one dwarf's comment (Dopey) can be true while the other two comments are false.

That was a 110 IQ question at best
