Christmas Tree Problem

Four angels sat on the Christmas tree amidst other ornaments. Two had blue halos
and two – yellow. However, none of them could see above his head. Angel A sat on
the top branch and could see the angels B and C, who sat below him. Angel B,
could see angel C who sat on the lower branch. And angel D stood at the base of
the tree obscured from view by a thicket of branches, so no one could see him
and he could not see anyone either.
Which one of them could be the first to guess the color of his halo and speak it
out loud for all other angels to hear?

Christmas Tree Problem

Four angels sat on the Christmas tree amidst other ornaments. Two had blue halos

and two – yellow. However, none of them could see above his head. Angel A sat on

the top branch and could see the angels B and C, who sat below him. Angel B,

could see angel C who sat on the lower branch. And angel D stood at the base of

the tree obscured from view by a thicket of branches, so no one could see him

and he could not see anyone either.

Which one of them could be the first to guess the color of his halo and speak it

out loud for all other angels to hear?
