Alan is an honest person who never speaks a lie. He thinks of a number among 1, 2 and 3. Now, you can ask him only one question and that too for which the answer that you will receive will be in the form of yes, no or don't know. But he will reply only truth fully.
What will you ask from his so that you can know the number he is thinking of?
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?

Kangwa, Rafael and Ferdinand plans for gun fighting.
They each get a gun and take turns shooting at each other until only one person is left.
Kangwa hits his shot 1/3 of the time, gets to shoot first.
Rafael, hits his shot 2/3 of the time, gets to shoot next if still living.
Ferdinand having perfect record at shooting(100% accuracy) shoots last , if alive.
The cycle repeats. If you are Kangwa, where should you shoot first for the highest chance of survival?
If Kangwa shoots the ground, it is Rafael's turn. Rafael would rather shoot at Ferdinand than Kangwa, because he is better.
If Rafael kills Ferdinand, it is just Kangwa and Rafael left, giving Kangwa a fair chance of winning.
If Rafael does not kill Ferdinand, it is Ferdinand's turn. He would rather shoot at Rafael and will definitely kill him. Even though it is now Kangwa against Ferdinand, Kangwa has a better chance of winning than before.
There is no reason whatever why the customer's original deposit of Rs.100 should equal the total of the balances left after each withdrawal.
The total of withdrawals in the left-hand colum may equal Rs.100, but is is purely coincidence that the total of the right-hand column is close to Rs.100.
Let us show another example, but starting with Rs.200 in the bank:
Withdrawals Balance left
Moral of this story? Don't Total Balances
There stand nine temples in a row in a holy place. All the nine temples have 100 steps climb. A fellow devotee comes to visit the temples. He drops a Re. 1 coin while climbing each of the 100 steps up. Then he offers half of the money he has in his pocket to the god. After that, he again drops Re. 1 coin while climbing down each of the 100 steps of the temple.
If he repeats the same process at each temple, he is left with no money after climbing down the ninth temple. Can you find out the total money he had with him initially?
Whenever you face such type of questions, it is wise to begin from the last thing. Here in this question the last thing will be the 9th temple. He climbed down 100 steps and thus you know, he had Rs. 100 before beginning climbing down. Thus, he must have offered Rs. 100 to the god in that temple too (he offered half of the total amount). Also, he must have dropped Rs. 100 while climbing the steps of the ninth temple. This means that he had Rs. 300 before he begand climbing the steps of the ninth temple.
Now, we will calculate in the similar manner for each of the temples backwards.
Before the devotee climbed the eight temple: (300+100)*2 + 100 = 900
Before the devotee climbed the seventh temple: (900+100)*2 + 100 = 2100
Before the devotee climbed the Sixth temple: (2100+100)*2 + 100 = 4300
Before the devotee climbed the fifth temple: (4300+100)*2 + 100 = 8900
Before the devotee climbed the fourth temple: (8900+100)*2 + 100 = 18100
Before the devotee climbed the third temple: (18100+100)*2 + 100 = 36,500
Before the devotee climbed the second temple: (36500+100)*2 + 100 = 73300
Before the devotee climbed the first temple: (73300+100)*2 + 100 = 146900
Therefore, the devotee had Rs. 146900 with him initially.
Two friends , Torres and Lampard, meet after a long time.
Torres: Hey, how are you man?
Lampard: Not bad, got married and I have three kids now.
Torres: That's awesome. How old are they?
Lampard: The product of their ages is 72 and the sum of their ages is the same as your birth date.
Torres: Cool..But I still don't know.
Lampard: My eldest kid just started taking piano lessons.
Torres: Oh now I get it.
The sum of their ages is the same as your birth date. That could be anything from 1 to 31 but the fact that Torres was unable to find out the ages, it means there are two or more combinations with the same sum. From the choices above, only two of them are possible now.
