Programatically we can assign a day of the week to each cooking style, and then look for an assignment that makes exactly four of the statements true.

This Python program runs in 38ms.

Solution:Monday = Coddled; Tuesday = Poached; Wednesday = Boiled; Thursday = Scrambled; Friday = Fried.Statement 2 is the false one.

Appropriately the fried egg is prepared on Friday.

There is an order in which all the statements are true:

Poached and Coddled are interchanged. And this is presumably what Consumer Research will conclude (unless she also told them that one of the statements was false).
