Welcome to my island 2 !!

Again coming back to my island where two types of people live . Liars and truthful people . They live in two different places . You as a traveller visit my island. You want to know who lives where . So what will be the one question which u should ask to anyone of the two persons that will tell u who lives where.??

So , here's the solution of this !!! U know that there are two places on my island where the two types of people will be found . But this is not known that who will be found where . So the question will be "Do you live here" How?? U know that if u will point on the place where the truthful people live and ask the question... then answer u will get by truthful _ "YES" and answer by a liar will also be _"YES" because he will lie . Now u also know that if u will be pointing on the place where the liars live and ask the same question then the answer by truthful person will be -"NO" and the answer given by liar person will also be -"NO" because he is a liar and will not say yes to the place where he actually lives . So. Pointing towards a truthful place and asking that question to anyone , the answer will be yes . And pointing towards a liar's place and asking that question to anyone , the answer u will get will be No. So taking inverse... if u are pointing to unknown place and asking that question, u will either get answer yes , than u will be understood that there live the truthful person . Or you will get answer No which means the place is that where liars live . So that question can tell u right places. @Calvin Lin Utsav Singhal · 2 years, 3 months ago
