Hello, I need help solving a riddle:
Prisoner 3 says: Prisoner 5, Prisoner 6 and I are truthful
Prisoner 6 says: Prisoner 5 and Prisoner 1 are truthful
Prisoner 4 says: Prisoner 7 lies
Prisoner 1 says: Prisoner 5 lies, or Prisoner 2 is truthful
Prisoner 4 says: I lie, and also Prisoner 1 and Prisoner 5 are truthful
Prisoner 2 says: Prisoner 6 lies, or I am truthful
You have two listings for what prisoner #4 says and no listing for what prisoner #5 says.
I suspect that one of your listings for #4 should really be #5?
I though the same, but it should be the right listing.
Got a breaktrough.... 1,2 and 7 are speaking the truth...
This reminds me of another riddle. You are a prisoner. You are taken to a room with two doors, and you have to go through one of them. One leads to freedom, and the other leads to immediate death. Each door has a guard. One guard always tells the truth, and the other always lies. You may ask one guard one question. How can you find out which door to go through. Answer: ask either of the guards what the other one would say if you asked him which door leads to life. Whatever the answer, go through the other door.
