  2. This is oversimplified hypothetical story in which the winner was my friend! One day Chuckles came to my home; he is my friend. I am 'smart' enough to immediately ask him story behind that mind teaser. What he had thought at that time is in his own words here... "If I had red cross on my forehead then there is no way Wombat & Breeze raised their hand looking at me. What Wombat (or Breeze) would have thought in that case Wombat (or Breeze) must have thought that Breeze (or Wombat) must have raised hand after looking green cross on my forehead as Chuckles have red cross on forehead. So both would have come to know what they have on their own forehead & would have taken hands down immediately. But they didn't. Hence I concluded, I must have green cross on my forehead & hence I took my hand down & earned the scholarship." Okay, but the your solution is based on the big assumption that the test is fair. How would we/participants know that the professor is very honest to present a fair contest? The link redirects you to the original puzzle.
  3. CAN YOU CRACK THIS MATHS OLYMPIAD QUESTION? JUST RE POSTING IT! Albert and Bernard just became friends with Cheryl, and they want to know when her birthday is. Cheryl gives them a list of 10 possible dates. May 15 May 16 May 19 June 17 June 18 July 14 July 16 August 14 August 15 August 17 Cheryl then tells Albert and Bernard separately the month and the day of her birthday respectively. Albert: I don't know when Cheryl's birthday is, but I know that Bernard does not know too. Bernard: At first I don't know when Cheryl's birthday is, but I know now. Albert: Then I also know when Cheryl's birthday is. So when is Cheryl's birthday?
  4. "The scholarship will be awarded," said the head to three candidates - Chuckles, Wombat & Breeze - "to the winner in this little competition. I am going to chalk a cross, which will be either a green or a red cross. I shall then ask each one who can see a green cross to hold his hand up; and take his hand down as soon as he can tell me what his own cross is. He must, of course, be able to explain how his answer is arrived at. Kindly close your eyes for 10 seconds." He chalked a green cross on all three foreheads. "Go!" All three hands shot up in air ; that of Chuckles was almost immediately lowered. "My cross is green , Sir" How did Chuckles know?

  5. That's the correct answer....Here is the explanation......https://spirit-of-genius.blogspot.in/2018/01/responding-to-test-of-examiner.html
  6. Five students - Adam, Cabe, Justin, Michael and Vince appeared for a competitive exam.
