(1). NO because "All chickens are truth" ( n + a)

(2). Yes because "All chickens are liars" ( y - a)

n+a ------(1)
y-a -------(2)
n=y or y=n
no=yes
the probability of yes = no

Can you clarify your mathematical equation because i'm completely lost!
commented by anonymous
Amfree, your question  "is the chicken telling the truth?"  demand 'yes' or 'no'


my answer : how do i know that chicken is telling the truth or not telling the truth

       Possible out come:
1. if that chicken is speaking the truth, it means all chickens are liars. Then that chicken too is a liar
2. Vice versa

my answer is both "yes and no" at the same time

if u say yes u score 50%
if u say no  u score 50%
:. I say yes and no for 100%

Ur mathematical eqn is actually wrong. Simultanionsly hw can u determine (y) and (n) after making (a) the subject?

The maths is incorrect. Try again

The if signifies that the chicken has not yet said it,therefore,one cant say whether it is telling the truth or not

Lets assume that the chicken actually  said that all chickens are liars should we believe it?

the probability of yes = no

on the other hand:
Amfree, your question "is the chicken telling the truth?" demand 'yes' or 'no'

my answer : how do i know that chicken is telling the truth or not telling the truth

   Possible out come:
  1. if that chicken is speaking the truth, it means all chickens are liars. Then that chicken too is a liar. "impossible"
  2. Vice versa. Impossible

my answer is neither "yes nor no" at the same time

if u say yes u are wrong
if u say no u are wrong
:. I say is neither "yes" nor "no"

commented by
your answer must be either yes or no not both. so chooses either yes or no and give reasons why
commented by anonymous
1. if that chicken is speaking the truth, it
means all chickens are liars. Then that
chicken too is a liar, because its also a chicken. It is not possible to give a statement which is true n at the same time lies. The answer is not 'yes'


2. Vice versa of 1. The answer is not 'no'

My answer is: neither "yes" nor "no"
by the way Amfree i did not use any search engines or anything else . Am just trying to exercise my Brian n this is my main answer to the riddle

Well it could also mean that if the chicken is a liar then it means that that the chicken tells lies but not always as an entity is called a liar if they tell a lie if only once. therefore the chicken talking is telling the truth but also it occasionally tells lies also.

i don't understand what you ar trying to say, I'm confuse so come again

Amfree dis is simple logic. 1. All chickens are liars in the sence dat wen dey do finish eatin dey rub deir beaks on the ground indicatin dey havn't eaten at all. 2. On the other hand we know a chicken never do talk and dnt understand our language, so hw was it able to say chickens are liars? Dat means dey (chickens) are not really liars. Think about it carefully. Well dats my opinion.

You have give two answers here, you are saying it could be yes or no but you must choose one. Is your answer number 1 or two?
