Adam is one of the finalist in an IQ championship. As the final test, he is provided with two hourglass. One of them can measure eleven minutes while the other one can measure thirteen minutes.
He is asked to measure exactly fifteen minutes using those two hourglasses. How will he do it ?
Fifteen minutes can easily be measure using these two hour glasses.
Step 1: He will start both the hourglass.
Step 2: The moment the eleven minute hourglass is empty, he will invert it.
Step 3: When the thirteen minutes hourglass is empty, he will invert the eleven minute hourglass.
In step 3, we will have counted thirteen minutes. Since we inverted the eleven minute hourglass in step 2, it started from fresh and was inverted just for two minutes (13-11=2). In this manner when it is reversed when the thirteen minute hourglass is finished, it will have two minutes of sand left. This time when the sand finishes, he will have measured fifteen minutes. (13+2=15)

Box1: Dark Chocolates
Box2: Milk Chocolates
Box3: Dark Chocolates and Milk Chocolates
How will he label all the boxes correctly by just opening one box?
It has been clearly mentioned that all the boxes are labeled incorrectly. If he opens the Box3, then he will get either Dark Chocolates or Milk Chocolates as it is labeled incorrectly. Let us suppose he finds Dark Chocolates in there. Now since all are labeled incorrectly, Box B A must contain Milk Chocolates and Box B must contain Milk Chocolates and Dark Chocolates.
