Hello, hiddy!

Please give the original wording of the problem.

As given, the problem does not make sense.

There is an Island on which there are three different people:

One group always says the truth, the other always lies,

and the third group switches. (They tell the truth then lie, and so on.)

A scientist comes to the island and meets with three people A,B,C.

He knows that every group is represented.

He asks one question:"To which group do you belong?"

If he asksquestion, why are they givingoneanswers?two

Since he asks "To which group dobelong?"you

why are they giving information about the others?

As first answer (A1): "C always tells the truth"

As second answer (A2): "B switches"

B1: "A always lies"

B2: "C switches"

C1: "A switches"

C2: "I always tell the truth"

Figure out which person belongs to which group,

Let the three groups be: .

Here are their statements:

. .

Suppose is false: .

. . .Then is false: .

Since and both lied,

. . then is the Truthteller.

Then both of 's statements are true: .

. . That is,Ais the Liar, is the Switcher.

Since is the Switcher, then must be true: .

. . That is,Ais the Switcher.

We have a contradiction.

. . Hence, is true: .

Then is the Truthteller: .

. . Hence, is the Switcher.

. . Therefore, is the Liar.
