    So yes, he told the truth.
    Well, isn't that assuming the guy he asked, told Him the truth......or a lie?

      Okay, either way, the 1st person will say "I live in the West".

      Thus, the tour guide must be from the West, since he said the exact same thing to Johnny (if he lived in the East, the tour guide would have said "he lives in the east").

      The problem never was to figure out where the 1st person is from
      Well, the way it reads.....

      The problem was to decide whether the guy walking, was from the east or the west. "He asked the tour guide to ask that guy where he lives."

      Which means the tour guide has to ask where the guy is from, to decide whether what he's saying is true or not.......and in the meantime, Smith has to determine which side his tour guide is from, to determine whether what He's saying is true or not....

        Johnny saw a guy passing him. He asked the tour guide to ask that guy where he lives. The tour guide asked the guy and came back with the answer: he lives over west. Did the tour guide tell the truth or tell a lie



        It never implies he is from the island.
        You have to interject some common sense into these stories....

        ...like why would a guy from kansas be a tour guide on the 'island'....

          That's not the point.

          You can't just assume he is from the island because it never tells you that.

            There are only 2 possible scenarios, each iwht two possible outcomes, which = to 4 possible answers.

            SCENARIO 1
            The man said he lives West. He's telling the truth.
            If the tour guide lived West, he would've told the truth said West.
            If the tour guide lived east, he would've lied and said the guy lived just up the block from him, East.

            SCENARIO 2
            If the man said he lived East, he would've lied and said he lived West.
            If the tour guide lived East, he would've lied and said he said he lived East. A lie of a lie.
            If the tour guide lived West, he would've told the truth and said what the guy said, West.

            Both of those red bolded are what the tour guide would've said in both scenarios with both outcomes, which was West. And he would've told the truth in both those scenarios which would've been West.
            It doesn't matter where the tour guide is from. Nobody from the island will say they live east. If the tour guide lies, he'll say the guy said east. But he said west, so he was telling the truth, regardless of if the native said he lived east or west.
