WAit...it is wrong!
how is it wrong...........?

say for example left is lieville and right is truthville.

1) you point left and say, do you live there.
If he is a liar then he will say no, since he lives there, but has to lie.
If he is truthful, he will say no, since he lives in truthville not lieville.

so far it works yes, in both circumstances they will say no if you point to truthville.

2) you point right and say, do you live there.
If he is a liar then he will say yes, since he does not live there, but has to lie.
If he is truthful, then he will say yes, since he does actually live there.

so in both cases, whether you point left or right. if the person says no, then you are pointing to lieville. if he says yes, then you are pointing to truthville.

I remember!

Ask him "Take me to your hom town"

If he is from lieville, he would be telling the truth if he went to lieville, so he would have to take you to truthville to be lying

If he is from truthville, he would obviously tell the truth and take you to truthville

Yes but there is only ONE person at the fork in the road and you do not know where they come from. You can only ask them once so if you say 'do you live there?' and they reply no, then you still are no clearer to whether that is truthville or lieville.

you don't get it man, didn't you see the pattern?

if you ask him do you live there, and you point left, both will say no.
you didn't understand what i meant by saying both.

if you end up with a liar he will say no. if you end up with the truthful one, he will also say no. you don't need to two people.

hence i am right.

but if it is the otherway around, both will say yes, either way, you will get directed to truthville, so you are right.

Understand now chicken?
