Realmazure Rationale (Posted on 2009-08-02) Difficulty: 3 of 5
The inhabitants of the planet Realmazure are Knights, Pretenders, Prevaricators or Liars. All the statements by a Knight are true, a Pretender will tell precisely one true statement, a Prevaricator will tell precisely two true statements, and all the statements made by a Liar will be false.

Four inhabitants E, F, G and H of Realmazure were busy in a conversation, when a visitor from a neighboring planet stopped by and asked each of them their identity. They said:

Inhabitant E
  1. I am a Pretender
  2. Gs second statement is false.
  3. F is not a Prevaricator.
Inhabitant F
  1. H is a Liar.
  2. Gs second statement is true.
  3. Es second statement is true.
Inhabitant G
  1. Fs second statement is true.
  2. Es first statement is false.
  3. F is a Prevaricator.
Inhabitant H
  1. I am a Knight.
  2. E is a Pretender.
  3. Fs third statement is true.
Determine the type of each of the four inhabitants in terms of the above statements.
