Liars can figure (Posted on 2017-04-24) Difficulty: 3 of 5
The annual round-table meeting pf the L&K Island's government meeting requires quorum of 5 members.
(i). Assuming that there are n members present and each one declares:
"I'm sitting between 2 Liars."
Can you estimate how many of them are Liars?

Another Liar arrives and takes a seat between 2 members and declares:
"I'm sitting between 2 Liars."
Apparently he is coherent (i.e. he lies) no matter where he placed himself.

(ii). Knowing that, would you change your answer to question (i)?
