One of chris and leroy is toad. Other is frog because if both are frog, both are lying. That means according to their statement they are toad(not frog). But it is already established both are frog. Similar logic with both being toad.
Between brian and mike, both are frogs. If brian is toad,mike is frog. But we know of chris and leroy is toad. So, there are atleast two toads which means mike is lying and is a frog. Contradictory to aforementioned. If brian is frog, mike and brain are same speices. Mike is frog. There are not altleast two toads. As only one of chris and leroy is toad. So, total toads=1, frogs=3
Imo, option d.
