In the Land of Knights and Knaves [LKK], Knights always tell the truth, and Knaves always lie.
Last night the LKK Community Center Committee threw a party for some of the children.
Some adults were there, also, as chaperones.
The six-person LKKCCC was talking about it afterwards:

Alice: I counted all the Men and Children that came. There were 9 total.
Barbara: I counted two more Women than Children.
Clarice: I was playing Cupid and decided there were exactly 24 possible Man-Woman couples here tonight.
Daniel: Of the groups of Men, Women and Children, I counted 4 in one group.
Elliot: Of the groups of Men, Women and Children, I counted 6 in one group.
Fred: Of the groups of Men, Women and Children, I counted 8 in one group.

I guess you can tell that the Committee members weren't all Knights; :o ... but be kind, and give the benefit of the doubt to as many as possible. ;)

How many men / women / children attended the party?
How many of the committee members are Knaves?
Who are they?

Please be considerate and conceal your answer in a spoiler. B))

LKKCC is a very truthful committee indeed, but their parties for children suck ;)!
