Ah the Islands!!

There are two remote islands in the pacific ocean. People born on one island always tell the truth, and those born on other island always lie.

You are on one of the islands, and meet three Islanders. You ask the first which island they are from in the most appropriate mother tongue, and he indicates that the other two Islanders 
are from the same Island. 

Then you ask the second Islander the same question, and he also indicates that the other two Islanders are from the same island.

Can you speculate what the third Islander will answer when asked the same question?

  1. There can be 3 cases, all of which are consistent:

    1. All three are from the island of truth. The 3rd islander answers, "The other 2 are from the same island".

    2. 1 and 3 are liars, 2 is a truth-teller. 3 says, "The other 2 are from the same island".

    3. 2 and 3 are liars, 1 is a truth-teller. 3 says, "The other 2 are from the same island".

    Take your pick. :)
