Mafia!

Posted on

01101 00001 00110 01001 00001! I used to have a database cataloguing which of my friends are townspeople and which are mafia members, but my computer crashed and lost all the data. Obviously, townspeople only tell the truth, and mafia members lie every time they speak. Among my friends, there is one doctor and one detective, both of which are townspeople. Can you figure out which of my 45 friends to trust?

“The doctor is one of Dan, Gus, or Ivanka,” said Amy.

“There are fewer than 20 mafia members,” said Anna.

“The detective is Amy, Donald, Fred, Heidi, or myself,” said Andy.
