1.

Suppose there are twin brothers; one which always tells the truth and one which
always lies. What single yes/no question could you ask to either brother to figure out
which one is which?

Would your brother say that you tell the truth?

The key to this logic problem, is to find a question that the two brothers would answer differently,
and that difference would therefore identify the two from each other. The lying brother would
answer the above question "yes." The truthful brother would answer the same question "no."

2. A man needs to cross a river in a canoe. With him, he has a bag of grain, a chicken,
and a fox. He can only carry one of the three at a time. If he leaves the grain and
the chicken, the chicken will eat the grain. If he takes the grain, the fox will eat the
chicken. How does he successfully cross the river with his load?

The man first takes the chicken across, leaving it on the other side. He returns alone in the
canoe and picks up the bag of grain. After bringing across the grain, he takes the
chicken back to the original side, dropping him off, and picking up the fox. After bringing the
fox to the other side, and leaving it with the grain, the man returns back to the original side,
retrieving the chicken, and making his 3rd and final trip crossing the river. At no point was
the fox left alone with the chicken, or the chicken with the grain.

3. You’re in a room with 2 doors and 2 guards each with one singularity. One door will kill you,
the other won’t. one guard will lie, the other will tell the truth. Even though you can tell the
difference you can ask only one question to know which is the correct door. What would that
question be?
Ask either guard:
If you were the other guard, which door would you say is the correct one?"

Then take the OTHER door.

The truth teller will truthfully give you the answer that the liar would give (in other words, the
wrong door.)
The liar will give you the opposite of what the truth teller would give you (in other words,
ALSO the wrong door.)

So, in either case, the answer will be the door that leads to death. So take the OTHER door -
which will be the correct one
