well Sasha......if you consider the tenth statement to be true, then there are at most nine of them that can be false........so obviously you arrive at a paradox........but just think about the other cases that might arise.........may be one of those cases will be giving you the correct answer.........thus it can be shown that it is not actually a paradox.........just think about it.......
