There is a lake with shores A and B. Two motorboats M and N are standing on the opposite sides (A and B respectively). M leaves A and N leaves B and start moving with constant speeds. They meet for the first time 500 yards away from A. After touching the shores, they return back to the previous shore point without taking any break. This time they meet at 300 yards away from B.
Can you determine how wide the lake is? What is the relation between the speeds of boats?
When the boats meet for the first time, they have sailed a combined distance that is equal to one length of the lake. When they meet the second time, they have sailed 3 lengths. The elapsed time and the distance for each is three times.
When they meet for the second time, the boat M has sailed 500 x 3 = 1500 yards. Now, this is 300 yards longer than the length of the lake, it must be 1200 yards wide.
The ration between the speed of boat M and boat N is equal to the ratio of the distance that they have sailed before they meet the first time.
AS you can see the picture, all you have to do is analyze it and tell who all from the pictured people will die if the person at E pushes the round object to the slide on the slope. Keep in mind all the physics and the terrain while you analyze the things.
If you notice the animated gif, you know that D, C and B are going to die. D dies directly after coming in contact with the object, C dies after being thrust by the spikes of the see-saw and B dies with the blue ball.
But consider the situation that the person at E stands for Ebola. Eventually A dies as well.
At first, there were 2 apples on the tree. After the wind blew, one apple fell on the ground. So there where no apples on the tree and there were no apples on the ground.
*apples => more than one apple
Another solution(non tricky one)
The wind blew so hard that the apples fell of the tree and blew along the ground.
A square island comprised of a square castle. A 14m wide trench surrounded the island from everywhere. Roman Empire wanted to invade the castle and gain the loot as well as possession of the island. They brought along wooden planks to cross the trench. However, they realized that the planks were just 13m long.
How did they use those planks to invade as well as capture the island ?
Although it looks complicated, the answer is simple. The password to his computer is JIGSAW.
