It may seem obvious, but if everybody got one question wrong, then everybody got two questions right! Have another look at the answers:

If the first person got Question 1 wrong, then so did the second person. That gives two completely different sets of “correct” answers for Question 2 and Question 3! So Person 1 Question 1 must be right: “TWO”.┬áThe same working gives the other answers.
So Q1 TWO, Q2 THREE, Q3 TWO are the correct answers.
