    More lies!

    Veritas always speaks the truth, and Prevars always lie. A stranger in their country meets a party of 3 and asks to which race each belongs. The first one mumbles an answer, which the stranger cannot understand. The second says: "He said he was a Prevars." The third says to the second: "You're a liar!"
    Of what race was the third?

    The third is from <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Veritas, the second from Prevars. We do not know where the first is from
    If the first is from Veritas he will speak true and say he is from Veritas
    If the first is from Prevars he will lie and say he is from Veritas
    The second says that the first said he is from Prevars (so he must by lying!), thus from Prevars
    The third said the second is a liar (true) so he must be from Veritas
