Puzzler of the Day


This is one of many "knights and knaves" puzzles, which were created by mathematician Raymond Smullyan.  The setting for most such puzzles is on an island which is inhabited by two types of people, knights and knaves. Knights always tell the truth and knaves always lie.

A visitor to the island encounters two inhabitants, A and B.

A says: We are both knaves (that is, A and B are both knaves).

Question: What are A and B? Knight or knave?
