Last year I overheard this conversation one day during the first seven days of November: Alec: “It’s the 5th today, let’s have a bonfire.” Bill: “No, the 5th is tomorrow.” Chris: “You’re both wrong — the 5th is the day after tomorrow.” Dave: “All three of you are wrong.” Eric: “Yesterday was certainly not the 1st.” Frank: “We’ve missed bonfire night.” If you knew how many of their statements were true, then you could work out the date in November on which this conversation took place.
What was that date?
