50 statements
.
In that case statement 1-50 are true (for a total of 50 statements)
and statement 51-100 are false (for a total of 50 statements).
So statement 50 (at least 50 statements are false) would be true,
but statement 51 (at least 51 statements are false) would be false.

100 statements that can be true.

answer Feb 27 by Subrata Pal
If 100 statements are true, then all statements are true. Then how can the 100th statement (at least 100 of these statements are false) be true?
