In a closed jar, there are three strawberry candies, two mango candies and five pineapple candies. You can't see inside the jar. Now, how many toffees you must take out from the jar to make sure that you have one of each flavor?
2 < 3 < 5
To find out the required number of candies, take one in place of the least number (i.e. take one mango candy) and then add all the greater numbers (i.e. three strawberry and five pineapple candies) to it.
A teacher is told that the principal of the school will be inspecting his class on the next day. Now, the teacher is worried for the impression that his class might cast on the principal since all the students are not intelligent. Also, the principal can ask questions from anywhere. However, he will have the power to choose any student for answering the question.
Now he wants that the principal must be impressed with the performance of his class. What will he do to maximize the final impression on the principal ?
The teacher will use a simple trick to form a perfect impression. He will ask all his students to raise their hands on each of the question that is asked. But the only catch will be that those who knows the answer correctly will raise their right hand and others will raise their left hand.
In this way, the principal will see all the hands being raised for each question even though all won't be knowing the correct answer. The teacher will ask only those who know the answer and they will always be correct. So the principal will be impressed to full extent.
Tilt the barrel until the fruit juice barely touches the lip of the barrel. If the bottom of the barrel is visible then it is less than half full.If the barrel bottom is still completely covered by the fruit juice, then it is more than half full.
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.
