We are all arguing on a subject that only has one answer: there is an infinite number of questions that can be asked that makes sure the answer given back by an honest person is not 'yes'. This is all I think, and I rest my case.

Simplify your thoughts.

Ask, "Are you a liar?"

liars dont ALLWAYS tell lies. liars are people that tell lies. not people that all they say are lies. if a liar never tells the truth, then it is impossible to say "i am a liar."

are you going to answer 'no' to this question?

Ya also have the category of questions where either 'yes' or 'no' is a lie along with the questions which would answer 'no' and the questions where a 'yes' answer is not appropriate.

I think the question is:"Will the next word you say be 'No'?"

Is there a single solution to this puzzle?

Honestly, no.

Hmmm. Lets attack this question by reducing it. Lets take a look at the question in reverse and see if we see an answer.

If you are an honest person, what is one question you cannot answer with a "Yes" ?

Critically thinking the correct answer would be the reverse of the question which would be

Am I a dishonest person?

Because if you answered it with a yes then you would totally negate the first question having been asked to start with. THINK PEOPLE!!
