It can't be seen, can't be felt, can't be heard and can't be smelt. It lies behind stars and under hills, and empty holes it fills. It comes first and follows after, ends life and kills laughter. What is it?
"You will hang me."
Since they cannot hang him - that will make him true and they can only hang him for a lie, and they cannot shoot him - they would mean he told the truth but if they shoot him it's a lie - he is free to go.
We have two soap of equal weights and a 3/4 pound weight.
However, after using 1/4 of soap we place all three objects on balance as On one side of balance we place one soap (unused) and on another side, we placed used soap (i.e 3/4th of soap) and 3/4 pound weight.
What is the soap weight?
If we look at the green bar wesee that its real height is 2/3 of its shadow. So that means we need to find 2 shadows length for the red bar, the uninterruped part and the one on the wall. Since we now know the formula for the floor shadow - real height is 2/3 of it - meaning the part that makes that shadow is 4 meters long. Then we have to add the part on the wall which is straight up, it has no formula so we just add those 4 meters on the wall to the 4 meters we got from multiplying 2/3 by 6 meters and we have 4 meters + 4 meters = 8 meterss
