Logical Problem (can U Solve It) by kulex2k1(m): 11:48pm On Sep 04, 2007 |
You are trapped in a room with two doors. One leads to certain death and the other leads to freedom. You don't know which is which. And you most definately want to know the door that leads to freedom. There are two robots guarding the doors. They will let you choose one door but upon doing so you must go through it. You can, however, ask one robot one question. The problem is one robot always tells the truth ,the other always lies and you don't know which is which. so what how do u get to know the door that leads to freedom? |

ask any of the robots the simple question - is this the door that leads to death. - there will be only one answer since one tells the truth and one tells a lie. If it is true, one will say yes, if it is not true, he will still say yes - so u beleive it is true. |

Its very simple. Ask ROBOT A a question. How many robots r here? If he says 2,you'll know that ROBOT B will lie. So just ask the ROBOT B " is this the room that leads to freedom?". If he says yes, just know its the other room. Vice versa. Very simple. |

Ask Robot A a simple question to which u know the answer then Robot B the same question. The Robot that lies will give a wrong answer. So you can identify him and then ask the other Robot which door leads to freedom. |

@ Aiphe you don't seem to get it, you can only ask one question to a robot. |

kulex2k1: Walk up to any of the robots and ask the following question: "If I asked you which door leads to freedom, where would you point me to?" Go through the door it points you to! Explanation Lying robot: Will point to the door to freedom (ordinarily he would point to the door of death, but since he lies, he will tell you the opposite of what he would actually have said if you asked him the question "which door leads to freedom?" Truth-telling robot: Will point you to the door to freedom because that it what it would do if you actually asked the question. |

Migines: I do not need to explain this anymore, do I? Read my answer again. It does not matter which one of them you ask that question, you will get the same answer. I could give you the mathematical basis for it if you like. Only one question, the right question, and you will get the right answer regardless of which one you ask. |

@Migines, the riddle didnt say u can ask only one question, it says u can ask one robot one question. that is not more that one question for robot A and not more than one for robot B. So since u already know that there are 2 robots in the room, the first logical question to ask any of the robots is "How many robots are here?" The answer to that question tells u which is the lying robot or the truthful one. Then u go ahead and ask the other robot which doors leads to freedom. Just think abt it, u'll see. |
