Once a man was caught for a minor offense and was presented in king Akbar’s darbaar
Akbar wanted to test the man and said: “You must give me a statement. If it is true, you will be killed by lions. If it is false, you will be killed by trampling of wild buffalo.”

Man was not able to answer and in the end requested help from Birbal, As it was minor offense Birbal decided to help and suggested him the statement.

After hearing the statement, king Akbar had to let the man go.

Can you think of the statement that Birbal suggested?

Salil's answer is correct i.e. he can say "I will be killed by trampling of wild buffalo."

1) Say if king assume it is a truth then he should be killed by lions that is a contradiction.
2) Say if king assume it as a false then he should be killed by trampling of wild buffalo. i.e. not a false statement again contradiction.
