This Demonstration provides a generator of logic puzzles of the type knights, knaves, and normals. These puzzles are about an island in which some natives called "knights" always tell the truth, natives called "knaves" always lie, and "normals" sometimes lie and sometimes tell the truth. It is assumed that every inhabitant of the island is either a knight, a knave, or a normal. If an inhabitant makes a statement , then we may conclude that "if is a knight, then is true" and "if is a knave, then is false".
