A clever robber breaks into a closed bank where he finds a clerk. He asks password of the safe from the clerk while pointing a gun on his forehead. Out of fear, the clerk manages to blurt out, “Every day, the password of the safe is changed. I can help you but please point away the gun as if you kill me, you will never be able to crack the password.
The robber ties the clerk on a chair and insert a cloth in his mouth. He then easily opens the safe after inserting the code and takes all the money before he flees.

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.
In the figure given below, you can see that there are five squares. Supposedly if this figure is formed using different matchsticks (refer the slight gap between matchsticks), can you remove just two matchsticks so that only two squares remain ?
Once there lived a king who did not allow anybody to leave the kingdom and any foreigners in his kingdom. There was only one bridge that connected his empire with the outer world. A guard who was a sharpshooter was specially assigned for a lookout on the bridge. According to the orders, anyone moving outside should be killed and anyone coming to his kingdom should be sent back. To take rest, the guard used to sit inside his hut for 5 minutes and return back on the lookout. The bridge took a minimum of 8 minutes to pass.
Even then, a woman was able to escape the kingdom without incurring any kind of harm to the guard.
The woman started walking across the bridge when the guard was inside the hut. She walked all the time he was inside (5 minutes) and then turned and moved back towards the kingdom. On approaching the kingdom he was asked for papers and since she did not have any, she was sent back.
