Riddle Number Nine

Professor Williams was visiting an island. All of the natives could only tell lies, and all of the visitors could only tell the truth. There was no way to tell them apart (by looks). The professor was interviewing people for a job as his assistant, but he needed someone that could only tell the truth. So he found one woman and asked her to ask a man a few feet away if he was a native or a visitor. When the woman returned, she said "He said he was a visitor." Is the woman a native or a visitor?

Visitor because when asked if you are a native or visitor, the visitors would tell the truth (visitor) and the natives would lie (visitor), so if the woman was a native she would have said the man was a native, but she didn't.

Why do you say that?

The goal was the woman was supposed to ask a man whether he was a native or a visitor, and then accurately tell Professor Williams what the man said.

It's impossible to tell unless they knew if the man was a native or visitor.
MysticMedievalSamuraiPrincess
Actually, it is possible.

Idk really but is it the fact that the man was a few feet away and couldn't be asked at that time?
