Three friends were having a party and they ordered garlic bread sticks from a nearby restaurant. Upon arrival, they divided the number of sticks among them equally. After each one of them have had four breadsticks, the total number of breadsticks that remained were equal to the breadsticks that each one of them had upon equal division.
With the data given, can you calculate the original number of garlic bread sticks ?
Suppose there is a Christmas tree and four angels are sitting on it amidst the other ornaments. Two of them have black halos and two of them have white halos. No body among them can see above their head. Angel A is sitting on the top branch and can see angels B and C sitting below him. B can see C who is sitting in a branch lower than his. Angel D is at the base of the tree and can't be seen due to the branches in between. Also, he can't see anybody as well.
If they are asked to guess the color of their own halo (they dont know that), who do you think will be able to deduce and speak up first with a right answer?
Now there can be two solutions to the given situation because there can be two situations:
Suppose if B and C have same colors, A will know that his color is the other one and he will be able to speak up the first.
Now if B and C do not have same colors, A will stay silent. This will tell B that his and C's colors are different. Thus he will speak up first.
So either A or B will speak up first depending on the situation.
You can see five identical squares made with blue matchsticks in the given figure. You have to make them six identical squares instead. To do that, you are only allowed to move three matchsticks. How will you achieve the desired result?
For each 5 miles driven using this rotation, each tire will lose (2/29000)+(2/21000) of its tread.So, suppose we drive 5*N miles like this. Then, each tire will lose 2*N*((1/29000)+(1/21000)) of its tread. We wish to determine N so that the latter expression gets to be 1, representing all of each tire's tread. That happens when N=6090, which is when 5*N (the total miles driven) is 30,450.
Since he is climbing 3 feet and falling 2 feet back every passing minute, he is actually climbing 1 feet every minute.
Therefore, he would have climbed 57 feet in 57 minutes. The remaining distance is 3 feet. He will take one more minute to climb it and reach the surface. Since he has reached the top surface, he won't slip back.
The husband had booked two tickets for departure and only one for the return. The travel agent told this information to the police and they immediately came to know that he had planned the murder right from the beginning.
There are three bags.The first bag has two blue rocks. The second bag has two red rocks. The third bag has a blue and a red rock. All bags are labeled but all labels are wrong.You are allowed to open one bag, pick one rock at random, see its color and put it back into the bag, without seeing the color of the other rock.
How many such operations are necessary to correctly label the bags ?
Think of a person living in a disguise
The one who also deals in secrets and speaks nothing other than lies
Now think of a thing that's always the last to mend
What's the middle of the middle and also the end of the end?
Now think of the sound that you have often heard
When you were searching for a difficult-to-find word
Now if you can join them together and you can answer this
Which creature would you be reluctant to kiss?
