knights and knaves at an island?

+2 votes
589 views

On the island of Knights and Knaves there live only two types of people: Knights (who always speak the truth) and Knaves (who always lie). I met two men who lived there and asked the taller man if they were both Knights. He replied, but I could not figure out what they were, so I asked the shorter man if the taller was a Knight. He replied, and after that I knew which type they were.

Were the men Knights or Knaves?"

Suppose you are visiting an island with knights who always tell the truth, knaves who always lie, and jokers who can do either.

You meet three islanders named Ellis, Farin and Gobi. They make the following statements:

Ellis says, "Farin is a joker."
Farin says, "Gobi is a joker."
Gobi says, "Ellis is a joker."

If you know exactly one of them is a joker, how many of them are knights?
