Chris. If the statement "I did not break the vase" is definitely false, we can be certain that Chris broke the vase. Statements that some individuals "couldn't have" broken the vase only mean that these individuals could have broken the vase, but do not guarantee that they did. Jim's statement that "Tom is innocent" is too vague. We know that Tom is not innocent, but this does not assure us that he broke the vase.
