Truth-Seeking a knight, knave or joker by Brilliant Staff

I didn't solve this problem the way the Solution shows. I just read one statement 'They all know what each other is (a knight, knave or joker)' If they all know what each other is then if there were multiples of any of them there would only be two options showing! There must be one knight.

Actually, this is technically wrong. Because of the word "or," there might still be, suppose two knights and a knave, proving your solution false. However, that is quite a loophole and still a valid report because of possible amiguation.

You could have submitted your solution as a solution to the problem, right?

Unless it's by Brilliant, you can't submit a solution, otherwise, you can.
