Determine, if possible, what A and B are if they address you in the way described. If you cannot determine what these two people are, can you draw any conclusions?
A says “The two of us are both knights”, and B says “A is a knave”.
part 2:
A says:if B is a knave, then I am a knight
B says: we are different
Who is who?
If A says we are both knights, then you know that he is lying because both can't be.
In part two which is the only statement that can be true?
If A is a liar, then both are not knights, and A is a knave.
