@Devendra Answer is wrong as it was written in the puzzle that person has not even looked at him

The solution is that man gave him two coins of 50c each (or 4 coins of 25c each) if man would have wanted one ticket then we would have given once 50c only. (I am not sure if we have 50c coin if not then the solution is 4 coins of 25c each)

The one who was deaf went to buy ticket! He can speak.
only one person is there

There're two people in front of you: your friend and an imposter looking exactly like your friend.
There's no way to determine who is who by asking questions, they know the same information about you.
You have only one bullet in your gun.
If you kill or injure the imposter, you and your friend will be saved, If you're wrong, he'll kill you immediately.
How will you know?
