Hmmm…Can you solve this?


  1. A Businessman reaches a road fork which leads to two cities. In one city the people always tell lies, and in the other city the people always tell the truth. The Businessman needs to conduct business in the city where everyone tells the truth and there is no cheating or lies. A man from one of the cities is standing in the middle of the fork, but there is no indication which city he belongs to. The Businessman approaches the man and asks him one question. From the answer that the man gives, the businessman knows which road to follow. What question did the Businessman ask?
  2. A magician is standing on a concrete floor holding a raw egg with his hand outstretched. Without the aid of any objects, he is able to drop the egg two feet without breaking it’s shell. How does he do it?
  3. What do these three have in common: Dogs, Diamonds, and Double Plays?
  4. What is the beginning of eternity, the end of time and space; the beginning of every end and the end of every place?
  5. What are the science teacher’s favourite states?

    If I asked your friend on the other road which one takes to the city of the truthful what will be his answer? He has to take the opposite one because if the man is a liar he will not quote his friends answer which is the right one he will lie and show the wrong one if the man is honest he quote the lies of his friend and show the wrong one so on all cases he takes the opposite to the answer. Hahaha

    1. Business man will ask from person that how many cities does this fork leads to? and which one is leading to true men land? from answer he can easily decide which road he should choose.

    2. If a normal height man (aprox. 5ft 8 inches tall) standing on concrete floor outstretches his hand then distance between concrete floor and hand will be more than 2 ft. Therefore if same man drops a raw egg then up to 2ft the egg will not break.

  10. sk ashif akram January 10, 2014 at 10:46 AM #

    1.He will ask the person “What would be the answer of a man of other city if I ask where people always tell Truth?”

    In any case, the answer is the “Liar’s City”

    How??? The liar will lie the people of True city will tell the Truth, similarly the honest from True city will testifies which city lies!!

    So, he will take the Route of the “other City”.

    The Question can alternatively be based on Common Sense!!!Like asking Gender, Where Sun Rises but I guess the liar will be too clever to give wrong Answer!

    2.He is using his hand to catch to Egg.(Remember, it’s only 2 feet)

    3.Every Word starts with D.
    The Second Answer is Everything can be dear to some entities, like Dogs are dear to people, diamonds to ladies, double plays to baseball pitchers.

    4. It’s the letter of E.

    Mathematically Close Answer is a “Potential Infinity”

    5. Three states of Matter- Solid, Liquid and Gas.

    1. He will ask the guy, “if I ask which way is the right from the city which has people who lies all the day what would that person answer. whatever answer he gives, he will go the opposite way.
    Here is how: If the person is from the lie city, he know if the business man would have asked the person from the other city (the true city) they would have told him the truth (to the good city) so he will lie and point to lie city.
    If the guy who was standing was from the true city, he know if the business man would ask the guy from the lie city, they would have lied so he would tell the truth and point to the wrong city again.
    2. He drops the egg on his other hand

        both will show him the way to Lairs City.

        because the Truth telling people knew that the liars will show him the way to liars city .

        and the liars will also point towards the way to liars city.

        so he ll chose the other one.
