A Democrat and a Republican are being interviewed.

"I am a Republican", says the man.

"I am a Democrat", says the woman. Assume that at least one of them is lying. Which one is it?


Both of them are liars! If the woman was lying, then there would be two Republicans. If the man was lying, there would be two Democrats. We are told that one is a Democrat and one a Republican and that at least one of them is lying. Therefore, both are lying.
