    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

    diplessposted 9 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 image83
    cashmereposted 9 years ago

    So Bud has to be a male?

  12. dipless profile image79
    diplessposted 9 years ago

    "All they know is his name is Bud"

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