$B = (\lnot C \land E) \land A$
$A = (\lnot E \lor D) \land *$
$D = \lnot A \land \lnot(B\lor E)$
$C = \lnot(E \lor B) \land (A \lor D)$
$E = (A \lor \lnot C) \land (* \land D)$

TRUE / FALSE

What am I?

  • $\begingroup$ Is the star a wildcard, or does it mean 'all', or is that for us to figure out? $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1

I think the answer is

The Australian rock band AC/DC

Because there are two different arrangements that make all of the statements true, which are (in order of A, B, C, D, E, *)

1,0,1,0,0,1 and
0,0,1,1,0,0

The first solution has one A and one C, and the second solution has one D and one C. Therefore, when we assign True to the star, we get AC and when we assign False to the star, we get DC. Together, that makes AC/DC, which explains the title well with the double meaning of AC/DC (band - singing) and AC/DC (alternating current/direct current - shocking)

    $\begingroup$ Sadly the answer isn't correct, once you find it you'll get confirmation from the title $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Precisely, this type of puzzle is slightly derived from the "Superlogic" formula $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I'm not familiar with the "superlogic" formula. Also, please delete your first comment, now that I have edited my answer. $\endgroup$
