 Day-knights and night-knights 4 (Posted on 2012-07-02)
There is a land where every inhabitant is either a day-knight or a night-knight. Day-knights tell the truth in the day and lie at night. Night-knights lie in the day and tell the truth at night. An inhabitant says, "Either I am a day-knight or it is day." Is the inhabitant a day-knight or a night-knight, and is it day or night?

 Submitted by Math Man Rating: 3.0000 (1 votes) Solution: (Hide) Suppose they are lying. Then, they are a night-knight and it is night, but night-knights tell the truth at night. Therefore, they are telling the truth, so either they are a day-knight or it is day. If they are a night-knight, then it is day, but night-knights lie in the day. Therefore, they are a day-knight and it is day.
