You are lost in the woods and the path you are following forks into two: a path to the left and one to the right. One path will lead you to safety while the other will cause you to be lost forever.
At the fork are two twin sisters who know which path is which. The sisters are identical in every way except one: one of the sisters always tells the truth while the other always lies.
Youcan ask only one question and you don’t know which sister is which. What canyou say to them so you know which path to take?
Ask one of the sisters which path their sister would tell you to take.
Let’s say the left hand path is the correct one to follow. The sister that lies knows their truthful sister would tell you the left hand path, so as they always lie they will tell you the right hand path.
The honest sister knows their lying sister will tell you the right hand path and because they’re honest, they will tell you this. So you should follow the opposite path to that which you are told, regardless of which sister tells you.
Well since you know you are not one of the cursed youcan go down a tunnel yourself but you want a good answer from the rest so you split the groups in three leaving two left. Let those two go down one tunnel and the other six go down two separate tunnels as well. When you all meet back 20 minutes later either you have found the tunnel or someone else. Now look at the rule majority rules. If the group of three has 2 people saying it wasn't down that tunnel then you should know it wasn't down that tunnel and one of the liars have been spotted. Same with the other group of three as well as the group of two. Judging by the answers the groups gave you, you should go down the right tunnel and head to safety while the spirits possessing the two people should leave and all is well.
You are driving down the road in your car on a wild, stormy night, when you pass by a bus stop and you see three people waiting for the bus:
1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2. An old friend who once saved your life.
3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.
Knowing that there can only be one passenger in the car, who would you choose?
