Are they really Married?


There were 2 tribes living on an island. The east tribal people always tell a lie. The west tribal people always tell the truth. Alan and Bryan came from the same tribe. However, we do not know which tribe they came from.

When they were asked the marital status, Alan said: Both of us are married. But Bryan said: I am not married.
Are they really married?

As both the statements contradict each other, they are liars.
Therefore, Bryan is married.
For Allan's statement to be wrong, he has to be unmarried.

if alan is liar then both r unmarried and alan is true so we tell that both are unmarried :o

If A & B is false then either A is false or B is false or both A & B are false.
Thats why what Ranjith said is right.

Both came from the same tribe telling lie..
Alan says "Both of us are married" It means that 1 of them is married.
Brian says "I m not married" which is a lie again..Hence Brian is married!
