Kerry: I lie on Saturdays
Kelly: I will lie tomorrow
Kerry: I Lie on Sundays

Since neither lie on Sundays, Kerry is lying today, and so must tell the
truth on Saturdays, which means Kerry lies on Mondays, Tuesdays and
Wednesdays, and today is one of these days.

So when Kelly says I will lie tomorrow she is telling the truth as the
twins never lie on the same day.

So the day you seek is a day on which Kelly tells the truth (one of
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday), but will lie on the next day
(one of Thursday, Friday, Saturday).

Hi,

both twins are telleing the truth on Sundays. So the last sentence is a lie. Thus the first sentence must be a lie too.
Therefore the second sentence must be true.

Now look who is telling the truth at Saturdays (remember: The first sentence was a lie!)

This conversation took place at a Wednesday, when one is telling the truth that she'll lie tomorrow and the other tells a lie (she must be in her lying mood).
