A group of campers have been on vacation for a long, that they have forgotten the day of the week. The following conversation ensues.
Christina: What is the day? I dont think it is Thursday, Friday or Saturday.
Mark: Well that does not narrow it down much. Yesterday was Sunday.
Meloni: Yesterday was not Sunday, tomorrow is Sunday.
Bens: Day after tomorrow is Saturday.
Anima: Day before yesterday was Thursday.
Sugie: Tomorrow is Saturday.
John: I know that the day after tomorrow is not Friday.

A vacationing family sitting around the campfire has the following conversation:
1. Father: What day is it? I am sure it is not Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.
2. Mother: Well that's not very helpful dear. Besides yesterday was Friday.
3. Father: No, now that I think about it, yesterday wasn't Friday, tomorrow is Friday.
4. Rahul: The day after tomorrow is Thursday.
5. Anya; You are stupid. Tomorrow is Thursday.
6. Mother: Actually, it's probably Thursday today.
7. Rahul: All we know for sure is that it wasn't Sunday yesterday.
If only one statement is true, what day of the week is it?

Eliminate all the days of the week except for one, and to be forthright about it, this day is NOT the day after Sunday or the day before Wednesday. It can't be that Saturday is tomorrow, nor can it be that Saturday was yesterday. It most certainly couldn't be two days before yesterday, and while we're at it, let's eliminate Thursday.

What day is it?

James and Jonathan are liars, who lie on specific days.
James lies on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, but he is honest on all other days.
Jonathan lies on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, but he tells the truth on all other days.

On what day of the week would they both say “Tomorrow, I will lie.”?
