Neatorama presents our collaboration with Pzzlr, a site where you can always find a riddle to exercise your brain. Can you solve this one?

A teacher places three coins in front of her student: 1 copper, 1 silver, and 1 gold. She tells her student, “If you tell me a true statement, you will be given one of the coins. But if your statement proves to be false, you will be given nothing.”

What should the pupil say to guarantee being given the gold coin?

Can you figure out the answer? Find out if you're right at Pzzlr!

That would be a true statement at the time, but then she might take it back and give you the copper one instead.
