A man aproaches you in a dark alley. He says, ‘If you tell a lie, I will kill you with a knife. If you tell the truth, I will kill you with a gun.’

    Recognize that only declarative statements have a truth value.
    Don’t make a declarative statement; that way it won’t be the truth or a lie.
    Here are three possibilities:

    [1] Remain silent. – or if you must say something, ask a question
    [2] Why do you want to kill me? – or exclaim something:
    [3] No! Please do not kill me!
