The second person shall shout first. Reason. The 1 person can't say which hat he has as 2 &3 are having different colours. So his may be black or white. As the 1 person didn't answer for a long time, the 2 person will come to know that he &3 are having different colours. As he can see that 3 has black hat he will be the first one to shout that his hat is white
