# The Lying Villages [duplicate]

This isn't a duplicate! The "Two doors with two guards - one lies, one tells the truth" isn't like this question! You just have to pay attention in each one to se the difference.

A man was walking along the road on the way to Village Where All People Speak Truth, which is nearby Village Where All People Lie. He had never been to any of the villages so he didn't know the way. He didn't want to go to Village Where All People Lie.

At one point there is a fork in the road and he knows that to one side is the village where he wants to go and to the other side is the village who he wants to avoid at all costs.

Not knowing whether to go to the right or left, gets confused. Then he sees a woman in the middle of the fork. He don't know to which village she lives, then he will only ask ONE question to the woman, and thereby discover the way to the Village Where All People Speak Truth.

• If there were only one guard in the other puzzle, I would agree this one is a duplicate, but since here there is only one person to ask, the same answer can not serve both puzzles. – dennisdeems Aug 19 '15 at 18:05
• @Dennisdeems: You're only asking one question anyway, so the person you ask it to can't matter. – Deusovi Aug 19 '15 at 18:07
• @Deusovi but the question you ask in order to solve the two guards problem can not be asked here. – dennisdeems Aug 19 '15 at 18:10
• @dennisdeems: I assume you're talking about the "other guard" question (there's another solution) - that can be changed with the trivial replacement of "someone from the other village". – Deusovi Aug 19 '15 at 18:14
