    1. Some possible answers: Yes - he also told me something true. No - the man is deluded or has a poor grasp of English. (Lying = saying something you believe to be untrue.)

    2. The doctor is the child's mother.

    3. Shoot = take a picture, and the two 'him's refer to the photo of him.

    4. Which alphabet? Or do you mean, how many letters are there in 'the alphabet'? Very ambiguous.

    5. The second door - I'm not afraid of dead lions.

    It appears Acolyte has already answered most of them. Except 5.

    5)Turn around. Chances are better with three assassins that with any of the other choices.

    all right except number 1. Answer is yes he is lying because he just told you that everything he says to you is a lie, so that would have to be the truth. If he tells the truth then not everything he said was a lie.

    Erm, that doesn't quite work - if he ONLY says to me 'Everything I say to you is a lie' then there is no consistent way of assigning truth or falsehood to that (assuming the man is not deluded etc.).

    1: He is definately lying- He can't be telling the truth, because that would be a paradox. Instead, he is lying, because the actual truth is that ONLY SOMETIMES does he lie, not always, but sometimes. Just becuase he is lying, it doesn't mean that he automatically tells the truth about everything.
