  1. “Which fork to Truth Town.” The liar would point toward Liar Town and the honest citizen would point toward Truth Town.

  2. Please take me to your town…

    A Truth town citizen would take him to Truth town
    A Liar town citizen would take him to Truth town as well

  3. Ask the citizen which way is the way to truth town and he will tell you the way to truth town because if he was from liar town he would have to tell you a lie and lead you to truth and if he lead you to liar town that would be telling the truth so he has to lie and take you to truth town

  4. Surely if you ask them “Show me where you live” or “take me to your town” you wouldn’t be any wiser as too whether you’re in truth town or liar town? Since he hasn’t lied to you or told you the truth…He has just shown you which town he lives in…

    The riddle assumes he lies with his actions as well? Which isn’t lieing, it’s just misleading. A liar can take you to their house because you don’t need to lie about where you live – so you could end up in liar town because he doesn’t even need to speak to take you there! So you need to deduce whether he is a liar or not by asking him a question; it’s the only reasonable way of finding out.

  5. ill ask one of the villagers that what would the other villager(of the other village) say if i asked him which is the village of honest people.if

  6. Either “Where do you live” or “What would you say if I asked you if this is the way to truth town?” For the latter form: the sentence constructs a double lie, so the liar will tell the truth.

  7. He could say “good morning”. If the man says good morning back, and it is morning, you know he’s from truth town. If the man says good evening or good afternoon and it is really morning, you know he’s from liar town.

  8. am I a stranger to u.
    the truth citizen will say yes and I will follow him.
    the liar citizen will say no as even if I am a stranger to him he will lie.So I would take the opposite direction.

  9. “If i were to ask you if that was truth town what would you say?” if it was the truth person would say yes and the lair would also say yes since he would have told a lie and said no he would lie about that and say yes instead.

  10. I would ask him “which way to ur town?”
    As the truth towner will take me with him as they speak true and liar would say lie and take me to truth town as well.

  11. he should ask, “what is you village” as if he was from liar he would point to the truth village, if he was truth he would point to the truth village, so he will com with the same outcome, getting him to where he wants

  12. The riddle says they “tell” the truth or tell lies. So don’t ASK a question GIVE an instruction. So say “take me to Truth town”. The riddle doesn’t speak to honesty or dishonesty regarding “actions” so theoretically he should do as he’s told as you haven’t given him the opportunity to speak.

  13. You ask him to point to the town he’s from. The liar will point to truth town, and the truthful person will point to truth town

  14. “which way will the other citizen point to if I asked the way to truth town?”

    I will take the other way contrary to the response I get.
    Because the answer they give is always a lie.
