Manoj came across 2 men while travelling, Jatin & Pankaj.

These two men have strange habits.

Jatin lies every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and the other days he speaks the truth while Pankaj lies on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, however the other days of the week he speaks the truth.

They tell Manoj the following

Jatin: Yesterday I was lying.

Pankaj: So was I.

On which day of the week did they make these statements?

It was on Thursday. Jatin tells the truth but Pankaj tells a lie, on the other days their statements would be contradicting.

The following is my attempt at proving that 1<-1 . In which of these steps did I first make a mistake?
Step 1: Let i = sqrt(-1) then i^2 = -1 and i^4=1.
Step 2: Hence, we have i^2 < i^4
Step 3: We divide both sides by i to get i < i^3.
Step 4: We divide both sides by i again to get 1<i^2 or 1 < -1
