Identifying the Strange Creature

**What was the situation?**
** L**et's first have statements by 2 creatures -
**A:** B is a lying monkey. I am human.

**B:** A is telling the truth.
If we assume B is telling the truth then A is also telling the truth. But A in statement says B is lying which **contradicts** our assumption.
Hence, B must be** lying.** If B is lying then statement of B suggest that** A** is also must be **lying.** That mean 'B is lying monkey' part of statement made by A is too lie. Since we have deduced already B is lying, the lying statement of A suggests that B is not monkey. **Hence B is the lying man!**
Other lie spoken by A is that it is human. **Hence A must be a lying monkey! **
