पारिवारिक दावत में आसान सवाल... (An easy one, in family get-together...)

विशेष नोट : अगर आप जवाब ढूंढ लेते हैं तो ठीक, वरना कमेंट लिख दीजिएगा, मैं जवाब आपको मेल के जरिये भेज दूंगा...

एक पारिवारिक दावत के दौरान मेरे भाई-बहनों के ज़िद करने पर मैंने खाने की मेज़ पर चार कटोरियां उलटकर रख दीं...

उसके बाद चार छोटे-छोटे कागज़ के टुकड़ों पर कुछ लिखा, और एक-एक कागज़ प्रत्येक कटोरी पर रख दिया...

कागज़ के टुकड़ों पर लिखा था, "दो या तीन", "एक या चार", "तीन या एक", "एक या दो"...

इसके बाद मैंने अपने भाई-बहनों से कहा, "मैंने हर कटोरी के नीचे टॉफियां रख दी हैं, और प्रत्येक कटोरी के नीचे बराबर संख्या में टॉफियां हैं... जो चार पर्चियां कटोरियों पर रखी हैं, उनमें से सिर्फ एक पर ही सच लिखा है, सो, अब क्या आप लोग मुझे बता सकते हैं, प्रत्येक कटोरी के नीचे कितनी टॉफियां हैं...?"

Now, the same riddle in English...

Special Note: If you succeed in solving this one, well and good; but in case, you don't, just leave a comment, and I will mail the answer to you...

During a family get-together, after being insisted, I placed four bowls upturned on the dining table...

After that I wrote something on four small piece of papers, and placed one of them on each bowl...

The papers say, "Two or Three", "One or Four", "Three or One", "One or Two"...

Now, I told all my cousins, "Look, I have placed candies under these bowls, and each bowl has the same number of candies under it... Only one of the statements is correct, and you have to tell me, how many candies are there under each bowl..."
