Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay So case 1 A is a Knight If A is a knight then " At least one of us is a knave" is true and with that statement B would be the kanave however the second statement would contradict the first statement and A would then be lying so he would then be a knave Case 2 A is a knave however since he says that at least one of us are knaves That would be true because statement because he is right at least one of them are knaves however that would be a contradiction because knaves always lie so this is false as well With that said they are nether knaves nor knights because A says he is ether a knave or a knight and in ether case he would be lying or contradicting himself So A and be are nether knights nor knaves

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A says “The two of us are both knights” and B says “A is a knave.” A is a a knave. Knights can not lie, so why is he saying they are both knights. If B was the knave then why would he say he was a knave.
