I've read this a million times and I can't figure it out...
Nathan, Joshua, Michelle, and Denise were in a room where a porcelain vase was found broken. When an inquiry was conducted by the building caretaker, each made a statement.
Nathan: Joshua broke the vase.
Joshua: Nathan did not do it.
Michelle: Joshua lied when he said Nathan did not do it.
Denise: Joshua did it.
The caretaker knew that only one statement is not true and concluded that Michelle broke the vase.
Describe in complete sentences the method you use to show that the caretaker made an incorrect conclusion.

Joshua and Michelle statements contradict each other. So one of them is lying.

Michelle probably is lying. But why would Joshua cover for Nathan?
