# Cups and Balls

GISYERLOOT FAIR had arrived in town .  “Roll up! Roll up!” shouted one stall owner . “A prize for guessing the number of balls under the cups!”

On the counter in front of him were four upturned cups. Each concealed the same number of balls . On each cup was a statement about the number of balls underneath. From left to right they read as follows.

“One or four,” “Two or four,”  “Two or three,” or “One or two,” . Only one of the four statements was correct .

How many balls were under a cup and which statement was true ?

### See our previous ‘Puzzles of the Day’:

1. Three(3) balls
Statement on cup 3: Two or three is true

2. Prateek Trehan

Assuming statement one is not a typo. It is the true statement and there is one ball underneath each cup
