quote:Here's a brainteaser:A man gets lost in a forest,and stumbles upon two identical twins.They're the only ones that know the way out.One always tells the truth,and the other always lies.What question do you ask them that would lead you out of the forest?
quote:You ask both of them: 'Do you know the way out of here?' The one that says yes is telling the truth since you know they both know. So you grab the truthful one and force them to lead you out . In fact there are loads of solutions, ask 'Do you both tell the truth?' the one that says no wins. The harder version of this is if you can only ask one question to one of the twins . Heh you aint gunna catch me out with that kind of logic I deal with it everyday all day programming! Or if you want directions say: 'If it is at all possible to get out of the forest, please give me the directions to escape, otherwise say nothing.'
quote:That's incorrect actually,because the one that lies will never speak the truth,so if you said 'do you know the way out?',they'll both say yes,and remember,you cant tell them apart,they're twins.That's unless you already know that and just could'nt be bothered to give the correct term.
quote:I would ask: 'How to get lost in the forest?' And the one who ALWAYS lies tells you how to get out of the forest.
quote:Would'nt work, the one who always lies would probably tell you to keep a map or stay on the paths
