Thread: SOLVE THE RIDDLE

  1. #1

    Default SOLVE THE RIDDLE

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who loves me some riddles on this Forum, right? The rules are simple, you make a riddle (one that makes sense, thank you), there's a timelimit on each riddle (3 days in another forum where I go), and after those 3 days, someone else makes a riddle, if someone manages to solve a riddle , he'l have to be the one making the next riddle.

    I dunno, sounds like a cool idea, albeit generic, if it gets enough activity, I'm sure this will be a fun thread.

    So, I'l start, saw this in another forum I go to:

    An eccentric king is on his deathbed and is asked which of his sons he would delegate the kindgdom to. Being the eccentric type of person he was, he did not simply choose the firstborn, but instead issued a challenge, equally eccentric. He decreed that the kingdom would be handed over to the son with the slowest horse. The sons quickly chose the horses among their respective stables that they knew to be the slowest. Of course, it quickly dawned on them that there was no guarantee that the other brother would show integrity in the race, and may very well try to make the horse run more slowly than it was capable of. One of the sons went to the kingdom's wiseman an hour before the race, and asked him, "what can we do in order to insure that the horses are running as quickly as possible." the wiseman thought on this question for a minute, and then responded in two words, at which point, the son left, knowing that the race would be made fair.

    What did the wiseman say?

    How does the Wiseman know the speed of two randomly selected horses?

    If you are asking about why is that the answer, by switching the horses everybody would run the best they can so their horse(which is with another person) wins.

    After the switch, the sons would be riding each other horses. So, each will try to run as fast as he could to ensure that the horse he is riding on doesn't win.

    To be fair, at the start of the race the wiseman could have yelled out in the horse language: "GLUE FACTORY!!"

    Next :

    Three wise men were seated across a round table. There was a dot painted on each of their foreheads that was either white or black such that each could see the color of the other two, but not his own. They were told that atleast one of them had the color black marked on their forehead, but in actuality all were painted black, but they didn't know. They also were told that whoever correctly figured out the color of the dot on his own forehead would win. For a while no one was able to tell but After some time, the wisest among them correctly guessed his own color. How did he know?

    He is a wiseman, not Dr. Dolittle.
    .
    Since nobody could reach the answer he realized them was seeing the same as him, and said black?

    If he had a white dot, the other two would've known which color they had, but since none of them said anything, he figured he had black, right?
