Question: A young man walks through the forest. He comes to a bridge. In front of the bridge is a large man carrying an axe. The man says, "If you want to cross this bridge, you must tell me a statement. If I think the statement is true, you will be strangled to death. If I say the statement is false, your head will be chopped off." A few minutes later, the young man walked over the bridge, while the larger man stood pondering. What was the statement the young man had given?
Answer: The man said, "My head will be chopped off."
Question: You have two coconuts and you want to find out how high they can be dropped from a 100 story building before they break. But you only have $1.40 and the elevator costs a dime each time you ride it up (it's free for rides down).
How can you drop the coconuts to guarantee you will find the lowest floor they will break at, while starting and ending at floor 1?
Note: They break when dropped from the same height and they don't weaken from getting dropped.
Answer: You could drop it at floor 1 first (because you start at floor 1). Then you would go to the floors: 14, 27, 39, 50, 60, 69, 77, 84, 90, 95, 99, and 100. Whatever floor your first coconut breaks at, go to the floor above the last floor the coconut survived and drop the second coconut from this floor. Then go up by one floor until the second coconut breaks and that is the lowest floor it will break at.
Question: You have a horrible disease but thankfully there is a medicine for it. Everyday you must take one pill called Batz and one pill called Scatz. On the very first day, you pour one Batz in your hand then you pour two Scatz in your hand by accident! These pills are identical and if you take too much or too little of either pill on any day you will die. You cannot get a refill or throw any pills away.
How can you still take the pills you have in your hand and live?
Answer: To do this you just have to get another Batz and cut all four pills in half taking a half from each pill. Do the same the next day and you will definitely get the right amount of each pill for the two days.
Question: There are 3 men, two Chimps, and one Gorilla on one side of a river:
Answer: Steps: (They all start on the left side).
(Left side | Right side)
(3 men, 1 Gorilla, 2 Chimps | 0 men, 0 Gorilla, 0 Chimps)
-> Chimp and Gorilla (3 men, 0 Gorilla, 1 Chimps | 0 men, 1 Gorilla, 1 Chimps)
<- Gorilla (3 men, 1 Gorilla, 1 Chimps | 0 men, 0 Gorilla, 1 Chimps)
-> Chimp and Gorilla (3 men, 0 Gorilla, 0 Chimps | 0 men, 1 Gorilla, 2 Chimps)
<- Gorilla (3 men, 1 Gorilla, 0 Chimps | 0 men, 0 Gorilla, 2 Chimps)
-> Two men (1 men, 1 Gorilla, 0 Chimps | 2 men, 0 Gorilla, 2 Chimps)
<- Human and Chimp (2 men, 1 Gorilla, 1 Chimps | 1 men, 0 Gorilla, 1 Chimps)
-> Human and Gorilla (1 men, 0 Gorilla, 1 Chimps | 2 men, 1 Gorilla, 1 Chimps)
<- Human and Chimp (2 men, 0 Gorilla, 2 Chimps | 1 men, 1 Gorilla, 0 Chimps)
-> 2 men (0 men, 0 Gorilla, 2 Chimps | 3 men, 1 Gorilla, 0 Chimps)
<- Gorilla (0 men, 1 Gorilla, 2 Chimps | 3 men, 0 Gorilla, 0 Chimps)
-> Gorilla and Chimp (0 men, 0 Gorilla, 1 Chimps | 3 men, 1 Gorilla, 1 Chimps)
<- Gorilla (0 men, 1 Gorilla, 1 Chimps | 3 men, 0 Gorilla, 1 Chimps)
-> Gorilla and Chimp (0 men, 0 Gorilla, 0 Chimps | 3 men, 1 Gorilla, 2 Chimps)
And they are all safely across.
Question: There are three doors: First door~ all kinds of snake will strike you once you've entered this door. Second door~ about thousands of skillful assassins are waiting in this door. Once you've entered, they will attack you to death until there are no bones left. 3rd door~ a desert, you will be die any minutes. Because there's no water (exhaustion) and from extreme the heat of the sun. Which door would you choose? Which door you think that is safe to enter???
Answer: 3rd Door; you will only have to wait until night. So that the temperature from the desert will decrease as it gets colder during the night in the desert.
