A king decided to let a prisoner try to escape the prison with his life. The king placed 2 marbles in a jar that was glued to a table. One of the marbles was supposed to be black, and one was supposed to be blue. If the prisoner could pick the blue marble, he would escape the prison with his life. If he picked the black marble, he would be executed. However, the king was very mean, and he wickedly placed 2 black marbles in the jars and no blue marbles. The prisoner witnessed the king only putting 2 black marbles in the jars. If the jar was not see-through and the jar was glued to the table and that the prisoner was mute so he could not say anything, how did he escape with his life?

You are in the passenger seat while Jatin is driving a car.
Jatin is very good in driving. He closes his eyes to scare you as he is driving. You look at him and see his eyes closed. Your heart starts thrashing because there is something in the road and Jatin has to deviate out of the way, but with his eyes closed he can’t see it, yet he still deviated out of the way and kept driving perfectly. Along with his eyes being closed the whole time, you were also silent the whole time.
How that is possible that he knew something was in the way with his eyes closed?
