Lion and Unicorn I. - Back to the Logic Problems
Alice came across a lion and a unicorn in a forest of forgetfulness. Those two are strange beings. The lion lies every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and the other days he speaks the truth. The unicorn lies on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, however the other days of the week he speaks the truth.
Lion: Yesterday I was lying.
Unicorn: So was I.
Which day did they say that?

Thursday. Lion: Yesterday I was lying. This is truth because he lies on Wednesdays and tells the truth on Thursdays. Unicorn: So was I. This is a lie because he tells the truth on Wednesdays and lies on Thursdays.

Has anyone remembered seeing lions in zoo parks or nature programmes????!!!! Gad, they are always lying! Lions symbolize the ultimate economy of energy.Thus, the lion and the UNicorn could only be saying this on Sunday. :rolleyes:

This is completely ridiculous, people - it could be any day between Tuesday and Saturday.
Let me break it down for you.

Monday - impossible, the unicorn also told the truth on Sunday and can't lie about it.
Tuesday - possible if the lion is telling the truth and the unicorn is lying.
Wednesday - possible if lion=LIE and uni=TRUTH
Thursday - possible if lion=TRUTH and uni=LIE
Friday - possible if lion=LIE and uni=TRUTH
Saturday - possible if lion=TRUTH and uni=LIE
Sunday - impossible because today they are both telling the truth.

Agree?
