John, Pete, Tom, George, and Steve are brothers. One day, one of them broke a window. When their father asked them who did it, they gave the following answers:
John: "It was Pete or Tom."
Pete: "It was neither George nor me."
Tom: "Both of you are lying."
Steve: "No, only one of them is lying."
George: "No, Steve, you are wrong."
Then their mother added: "Three of my sons are telling the truth, but I do not believe what the two others said."

My Question is Who broke the window?

Edited your tags for you. You wanted [hide], not [h].

(And I agree with your answer )

Edit: And it looks like you were editing while I was and managed to fix it yourself anyway. Ah well.

Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.
