 Three people (Posted on 2011-02-14)
You meet three people, A, B, and C. Each one is either a knight or a liar. A and B make these statements.

A:We are all of the same type.
B:A and C are of different types.

What are A, B, and C?

 Submitted by Math Man No Rating Solution: (Hide) Suppose A is a knight. Then, they are all of the same type, so they are all knights. Then, B would be lying about A and C being of different types. That is impossible, so A is a liar. Therefore, they are not all of the same type, so either B or C is a knight. If B is a liar, then A and C are of the same type, so C is a liar and they are all liars. However, either B or C is a knight. Therefore, B is a knight. Since B is a knight, A and C are of different types, so C is a knight. A:liar B:knight C:knight
