Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts

Answer:
**Emma**

We know that Bud couldn't possibly be telling the truth, since he is implying that Kate is also telling the truth, which would result in more than one truthful person. Therefore, Bud is lying, so Kate is not the person who breathes underwater, which means that Kate must also be lying. Since we know that Kate couldn't possibly be telling the truth, we know that Kate is the person who produces fire. Since only Kate produces fire, we know that Emma must be telling the truth.

Another way to solve it is to first observe that if Emma is lying, then Ray must be the person who produces fire, which would mean that Kate has to be telling the truth that she cannot produce fire, which would mean that Kate is the person who can breathe underwater, which creates a contradiction, because then Bud would also have to be telling the truth, when there can only be one truthful person.

Answer:
**Stork**

We know that neither Chicken nor Ibis can regrow limbs, and are both lying, because if either one of them was telling the truth, then the other would also have to be telling the truth, which violates the rules.

We know that: Hawk, Eagle, Swan, and Condor are all lying, because if any one of them was telling the truth, then Flamingo would have to be a second truth teller. This also means that: Hawk, Eagle, Swan, and Stork are eliminated as possibly breathing underwater.

If Flamingo is telling the truth, then only Chicken, Ibis, or Condor are left as possibly breathing underwater. This is impossible because there cannot be more than one truth teller, so Chicken, Ibis, and Stork would have to all be lying, which would eliminate Chicken, Ibis, and Condor as possibly breathing underwater. There wouldn't be anyone left to possibly breathe underwater, so we know that Flamingo must be lying, and breathes underwater.

By process of elimination, we know that Stork is the only person who can be telling the truth, without resulting in contradictions.

Answer:
**Reese**

One true statement by Ray or Tori will result in the other being a complete liar, so we know that the complete liar is either Ray or Tori, but we don't yet know if the other is completely truthful, or a partial liar. We know that Kate cannot be completely truthful (since Emma can't have 2 abilities), and since anyone who is not Ray or Tori must be making at least one true statement, Kate must be a partial liar, and Emma must breathe underwater or freeze with her breath.

This means that anyone who claims Emma has a different ability, is lying in that statement, but must be truthful about the other since only Ray or Tori can be the complete liar. Haley must be telling the truth about breathing fire, Bud must be telling the truth about not producing venom, and Emma must be telling the truth that Tori is a partial liar, so Tori must be making at least 1 true statement, which means that both of Ray's statements are false, no matter which of Tori's is true. Ray has to be the complete liar. The only people left to be telling the complete truth are: Reese or Connor.

If Connor is truthful in both of his statements, then he couldn't possibly be the venom producer, so Reese would have to be lying in his first statement, and telling the truth in his second, implying that Kate does regrow limbs, which contradicts Connor claiming that Kate produces electricity.

Reese is the only person who can be truthful in both statements, without any contradictions.

Reese is the only person who can be truthful in both statements, without any contradictions.

Answer:
**5 **

Stork cannot be the venom producer, because whether or not his statement is true, it creates a paradox. If Stork is a liar, then Ibis is a liar, meaning that the venom producer tells the truth, contradicting the idea that Stork is venom producer. If Stork tells the truth, then Ibis tells the truth, meaning that the venom producer is a liar, contradicting the idea that Stork is telling the truth. Stork is not the venom producer, so Swan is definitely lying. Therefore Flamingo is definitely lying.

If Eagle is the venom producer, then his statement is contradictory no matter what, for similar reasons as Stork, so Eagle is definitely not the venom producer. Therefore, Condor and Hawk are definitely lying.

The 4 left who are not definite liars are Eagle, Stork, Chicken, and Ibis. Chicken couldn't possibly be telling the truth, since the statements of Eagle, Stork, and Ibis are either all true or all false, the number of liars can only be 4, 5, 7, or 8, which means that Chicken is definitely lying, since there cannot be 6.

We know that there must be 5 or 8 liars, but if there are 8, then nobody could possibly be the venom producer since the statement of Ibis would be contradictory. Therefore, we know that there must be exactly 5 liars.

Stork cannot be the venom producer, because whether or not his statement is true, it creates a paradox. If Stork is a liar, then Ibis is a liar, meaning that the venom producer tells the truth, contradicting the idea that Stork is venom producer. If Stork tells the truth, then Ibis tells the truth, meaning that the venom producer is a liar, contradicting the idea that Stork is telling the truth. Stork is not the venom producer, so Swan is definitely lying. Therefore Flamingo is definitely lying.

If Eagle is the venom producer, then his statement is contradictory no matter what, for similar reasons as Stork, so Eagle is definitely not the venom producer. Therefore, Condor and Hawk are definitely lying.

The 4 left who are not definite liars are Eagle, Stork, Chicken, and Ibis. Chicken couldn't possibly be telling the truth, since the statements of Eagle, Stork, and Ibis are either all true or all false, the number of liars can only be 4, 5, 7, or 8, which means that Chicken is definitely lying, since there cannot be 6.

We know that there must be 5 or 8 liars, but if there are 8, then nobody could possibly be the venom producer since the statement of Ibis would be contradictory. Therefore, we know that there must be exactly 5 liars.

Answer:
**Kate**

Anyone implying that Tori is lying couldn't possibly be the electricity producer, since that is similar to saying, "I am a liar." The electricity producer cannot be Ray, Haley, Connor, or Emma. We also know that those 4 must be either all lying, or all telling the truth.

If Reese is lying, then he does produce electricity, which means that Tori and Kate are also lying. Ray, Haley, Connor, and Emma would have to all be telling the truth, meaning that there are 3 or 4 liars. This would make Bud's statement contradictory no matter what. Bud can't be telling the truth, since there would only be 3 liars, but if Bud is lying, then he makes a 4th liar, implying he is telling the truth. Therefore, Reese must be telling the truth to avoid contradictions.

By process of elimination, Kate is the only person who can be the electricity producer.

Answer:
**Swan**

Stork produces venom or sees in the dark, so we know Flamingo's second statement is false, making his first statement true. Therefore, Flamingo has great strength.

We know Hawk must be telling the truth in his second statement, so he is lying in his first, meaning that Condor does breathe underwater.

Ibis is therefore lying about breathing underwater, so is telling the truth that Eagle freezes with breath. Condor is lying about producing electricity, since he breathes underwater, so is telling the truth that Ibis regrows limbs. Eagle is lying about producing venom, so is telling the truth that Hawk produces fire.

So far we know that: Eagle freezes with breath, Hawk produces fire, Ibis regrows limbs, Flamingo has great strength, and Condor breathes underwater. The electricity has to be Chicken or Swan, because it already can't be Stork. If Swan is telling the truth that Chicken sees in the dark, then Stork has to produce venom, and Swan is the only one left to produce electricity, but that would result in both of Swan's statements being true. Therefore, Swan is lying that Chicken sees in the dark, and telling the truth about producing electricity. Chicken must produce venom, and Stork sees in the dark.

Stork produces venom or sees in the dark, so we know Flamingo's second statement is false, making his first statement true. Therefore, Flamingo has great strength.

We know Hawk must be telling the truth in his second statement, so he is lying in his first, meaning that Condor does breathe underwater.

Ibis is therefore lying about breathing underwater, so is telling the truth that Eagle freezes with breath. Condor is lying about producing electricity, since he breathes underwater, so is telling the truth that Ibis regrows limbs. Eagle is lying about producing venom, so is telling the truth that Hawk produces fire.

So far we know that: Eagle freezes with breath, Hawk produces fire, Ibis regrows limbs, Flamingo has great strength, and Condor breathes underwater. The electricity has to be Chicken or Swan, because it already can't be Stork. If Swan is telling the truth that Chicken sees in the dark, then Stork has to produce venom, and Swan is the only one left to produce electricity, but that would result in both of Swan's statements being true. Therefore, Swan is lying that Chicken sees in the dark, and telling the truth about producing electricity. Chicken must produce venom, and Stork sees in the dark.

Answer:
**2 **

If Jen is telling the truth, then Carlos is lying, implying that Isabella is lying as well. This implies that Ron is lying, implying that James is both telling the truth and lying. This is contradictory, so we know that Jen must be lying, implying that Carlos is telling the truth, implying Isabella is lying, implying Ron is telling the truth, implying that James is telling the truth, which does not create any contradictions.

Therefore, the number of false statements is 2.

Answer:
**4 **

If Lisa is telling the truth, then Mary is lying, Eric is telling the truth, Gina is lying, and the validity of John's statement is NOT the same as Gina's, meaning that John is telling the truth. This contradicts the fact that Lisa is telling the truth, so we know that Lisa has to be lying.

Therefore, Mary is telling the truth, Eric is lying, Gina is telling the truth, and John is telling the truth, which does not contradict the fact that Lisa is lying. So far we've determined 2 definite liars. If Saul is telling the truth, then Faye is lying, which would create a 3rd liar and contradict Saul's statement. We know that Saul must be lying, and Faye is telling the truth.

There has to be 3 liars and 4 truth tellers.

Answer:
**JMRJM or MJRMJ**

If Rick is telling the truth, then it would imply that James and Madison are both telling the truth, which is impossible because the weakest opponent is guaranteed to lie. Rick is lying and is the weakest.

James and Madison are claiming the same thing, so they are either both lying or both telling the truth. There can't be 3 liars, since the strongest opponent is guaranteed to tell the truth. James is telling the truth and is in the middle and Madison is telling the truth and is best.

Some players might choose Madison as the person to play on the 3rd game, because then you'll play the weaker opponents twice each, and the toughest opponent only once. However, due to the somewhat illogical conditions of the bet, it is actually best to choose the weakest opponent (Rick) as the 3rd opponent, because the conditions of the bet state that you must win 3 in a row (you must win the 1st-3rd games, 2nd-4th, or 3rd-5th), so you must win the 3rd game no matter what.

Reserving the 3rd game for the weakest opponent will give you two chances to beat the strongest, instead of just one.

Answer:
**Producing fire and producing electricity**

Since Haley claims that Connor is truthful, we know that the two liars are either Haley and Connor, or Ray and Kate. Neither Haley nor Connor can be the electricity producer, because Connor would be calling himself a liar. This means that the electricity producer is either Kate or Ray. If Ray is truthful, then Kate would have to be truthful and also be the electricity producer, which contradicts the fact that Kate claims to produce fire.

This means that Ray is definitely lying, so Kate must be as well. Connor and Haley both tell the truth.

The strongest person cannot be Kate or Ray, since Kate claims that the strongest person is lying. We know that Ray doesn't regrow limbs, breathe underwater, see in the dark, freeze objects with breath, produce venom, or have great strength; so he must produce fire and electricity.

Since Haley claims that Connor is truthful, we know that the two liars are either Haley and Connor, or Ray and Kate. Neither Haley nor Connor can be the electricity producer, because Connor would be calling himself a liar. This means that the electricity producer is either Kate or Ray. If Ray is truthful, then Kate would have to be truthful and also be the electricity producer, which contradicts the fact that Kate claims to produce fire.

This means that Ray is definitely lying, so Kate must be as well. Connor and Haley both tell the truth.

The strongest person cannot be Kate or Ray, since Kate claims that the strongest person is lying. We know that Ray doesn't regrow limbs, breathe underwater, see in the dark, freeze objects with breath, produce venom, or have great strength; so he must produce fire and electricity.
