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.

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.
