The 2 players star t the game keeping identical 50 paise coins on a blank board alternately. The 50 paise coins can be kept in the board such that no part of the coin is outside t he board. It can touch the board edge but cannot protrude outside the board. The two players can place the coins anywhere on the board. The coins placed during the course of the game can touch each other at the periphery but cannot overlap with the already placed coins. The player who has space to place the last coin is the winner i.e the player pla cing the last coin on the board with no space available for the opponent is the winner. If you are one of the players, what will your strategy be so that you de finitely win? Answer:1. I shall keep the 1st coin the exact centre of the board. 2. now after each coin that he keeps, I shall keep a coin exactly diagonally opp osite. This shall reduce the space for his further attempts more than any other strategy. 2.Two guys A & B found out a old coin.on one side of that there is a picture of a king and on the other side it was written as 200B.C A told that the coin is a fake one but B said the other way. so who is right and why? Answer:A is right. How would the coin maker know that there were 200 years left for Jes us to be born before he even existed? 3.A man had three daughters. Another man asked him the ages of his daughter. He told that the product of their ages is 36. Second man was confused and asked for another clue. First man told him that the sum of their ages is equal to his house number. Second man did some calculations and was still confused. He asked for another cl ue. First man told him that his youngest daughter had blue eyes. On hearing this , second man immediately gave the correct Answer. Question : What are the ages of his daughter ? Answer:Ages:1,6,6 Solution:To begin with, there is a small logical assumption that all the ages are integer s. 4.Further to this, it is given that the product of the daughters' ages is 36. Th is gives the man just 8 possibilities: AGE 1 AGE 2 AGE 3 SUM OF AGES 1 1 36 38 1 2 18 21 1 3 12 16 1 4 9 14 1 6 6 13 2 2 9 13 2 3 6 11 3 3 4 10 The correct solution has to exist within this range possibilities because the ma n could guess the same. Calculation of the sum of their ages (the rightmost column) shows the only possi ble instances of the house no. If the sum were 38, 21, 16, 14, 11, or 10, he wou
He found it. 6. He had a very pretty daughter He decided to hold a Svyamvar for his daughter He called everyone but forgot to call a magician Magician was very angry . Now the question is what question the man should ask? Solution:Suppose the situation is Gaurd 1 stands at Door 1 and Guard 2 stands at Door 2 The man should ask the Guard 1 this question - .A man is trapped in a room. 5. and 2) . If you are able to recognise her then I will return her back to u" The next morning the king goes to his garden recognises his daughter and the mag ician returns her back to the king.. I 'll turn her into a flower and place her in your garden tomorrow morning. He went to the garden quitely late in the night and made some mark on all the flowers t hat existed there already. When he heard that he "had" to recognise her daughter "flower" the next morniong. What about all the flowers that Bloomed overnight? After marking all the flowers he also nipped all the Buds. 2.ld have been able to guess the ages immediately. There are no tricks . 2. You come there tomorrow morning.. Solution:The king was very clever. With similar arguments.Out of the two doors one goes towards escape and one towards jail.2 . This is possible only if Kiran's daughters are 1. The magician . 6. King was very upset . The man does not know which guard is lier and on which door and of course which door opens where.he has given a chance of escape by asking only one question to any of the guards. to be noted: 1. assuming no tie at the eldest position the correct set o f ages would be 9. he decided to play a game with the magician. And EUREKA.On e guard always speak true and the other always lie. He kidnapped the king's daughter. even after this hint the solution was not unquely deducible !!) Because of this.The garden had all the species of flowers so the daughter was just like any ot her flower. Fortunately. 2. He had to only look for a flower w/o that m ark. He was not able to do so only b ecause the number of the house and the sum of the ages was 13! (This is because. and 6 years old. He goes to the magician and pleads before him. It becomes clear that there is no ambiguity at this "youngest"position and that not two of them are tied at this position ( in case the ages would have been 9.. the task was cut out simple for him. being soft at heart . he did not have a unique solution until the man informed her about his youngest daughter. tells the king that : " O great King!! I agree to return your daughter back.The room has 2 doors and 2 guards on those doors. The Answer is purely based on logic.Long back there was a king. This way he would be having a higher probability i n identifying his daughter. So when he came back to the garden the next morning. The question is how did the king recognise his daughter??? Some pts.
