    You ask what the other door will answer. If you ask the city of truth what the city of lies says, they will honestly say that the city of lies would pick themselves, and you just go to the door opposite the one you’ve been told. So you would ask where would that door tell me the city of truth is.

  • Victoria, you are today’s winner!
    Answer 1: Ask a a door – “If I were to ask the other door which door leads to the city of truth, what would he say”. And then you pick the opposite door of what he tells you.
    Answer 2: Ask the door – “If I asked you which door leads to the city of truth before, which door would you have told me?” (negative and negative = positive, positive and positive = positive). and you choose the door that it directs you to.
    Answer 3: Ask a a door – “Do both doors lead to the city of truth?” If the answer is no, it’s the truth door. if the answer is yes, it’s the liars’ door.
