What is wrong with this statement?

Clarification: "What is wrong with this statement?" is the statement.

The reason I didn't make this a problem, is I couldn't find a way to put the answer, that wouldn't give it away! This is a very easy problem, but I'm hoping it stumps 1 or 2 of you.

Note: This question is part of the book "The Mysterious Benedict Society" which is a good read.

@Finn C And make sure to make it a multiple choice (so they don't get 3 chances! :) )
