    Here is the scenario: You have four people sitting in jail. One has committed a terrible crime.

    They have made the following statements:

    Anita says: "Kitty did it."
    Kitty says: "Robin did it."
    Ed says: "I didn't do it."
    Robin says: "Kitty lied."

    Your favorite snitch tells you that only one person is telling the truth. Create a Solver model to figure out 'who's done it.' You cannot use if statements in your model.

    Indicate 'who did it' either in the spreadsheet and also write some comments.
