How polished are your grey cells?

    Very simple game. One of us will ask a question that has to be answered by other Hubbers. Whether or not the question has been answered has to be confirmed by the Hubber who had asked the question originally (he/she can also give some hint if we all get stuck). Once a question is answered next question can be put up by any one of us. This continues.

    1. Only one question should be active at a time.
    2. Question should be such that it makes us think and use our grey cells. It could be math riddle, logical reasoning question etc.
    3. Question should not be "poor joke" types.
    4. Please don't give question from some research papers or anything like that. We are not scientists here!

    So I start, it is a simple one.

    I am going to a town whose way is not known to me. I come to a point where the roads divides in two, one to right and other to left. I find two guys standing there Mr. Truth and Mr. Lie. Mr. Truth will always speak the truth while Lie will always lie. I do not know who is who. I am supposed choose only one of them and ask only one question. What should I do such that I take the correct path?

    Ask either one the question will this path take to me my destination and get the path he points to.
    Now go down the opposite path.

      Both are correct. I thought no one is listening to this but glad that I was wrong!

      So cashmere looks like you have some very good logical reasoning brain! Why not try CAT!

    Ask one of them what the other one would say. Whatever they say do the opposite

    Another easy one to follow up:

    Following a tip off the FBI burst into a house to arrest a suspected murderer. All they know is his name is Bud. They find 2 plumbers a truck driver and a bank manager playing poker in a dark and smokey room. They immediately arrest the bank manager. why?

      Because the bank manager is a crook?

      cashmereposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Coz the plumbers and the truck driver can dispose o fthe dead body while the banker can not?

    When is dipless posting the answer?

  10. dipless profile image85
    diplessposted 7 years ago

    sorry have been off HP for a day and a half,

    the answer is because the bank manager was the only male in the room.

  11. cashmere profile image84
    cashmereposted 7 years ago

    So Bud has to be a male?

  12. dipless profile image85
    diplessposted 7 years ago

    "All they know is his name is Bud"

    with "his" being the oprative word

    I have come off the spelling forum, where I seem to excel but on here I can't understand the question.... poor me, I had a hard time at school, Thank goodness I am good at crafts...

    Maybe because Bud just might be the real name of the other three?
