How can you use these two containers, which are 11 and 7 liters, to measure 10 liters of water?

posted Jan 22, 2014

First fill 7L container then move it to 11L container. again fill 7L container and move to 11L till it filled. Now in 7L container will remain 3L water.
Then make 11L container empty and pour 3L from 7L container to 11L container and again fill 7L container full and moved it to 11L container. Now 11l container have (3L + 7L) 10L of water.

Pour two cans of 7 L ie 14 L in a container.Then take out 11 L from it so 3 L is now there then pour one more 7 L in it to make it 10 L.

A new prison has been built. It holds exactly 100 prisoners. Each prisoner is held in a solitary room with no way of communicating with the other prisoners, or anyone on the outside. Each day, the warden selects one prisoner at random, and escorts the selected prisoner to a central room for one hour. There is nothing in the central room except a light switch that controls a light bulb installed in the ceiling, which is visible but out of reach. While a prisoner is in the central room, they are allowed to turn the light switch on or off. They can also decide to tell the warden that they are certain that all 100 prisoners have been in the room. For simplicity's sake, assume the light in the central room is off before the first prisoner goes in.

If they are correct then everyone will be set free, but if they are not correct, then everyone will be executed. So, it is essential that they only talk to the warden when they are 100% positive that they are correct.

All 100 prisoners are allowed to gather together for one hour before they are put in prison to discuss their strategy for getting out. Can you come up with a plan that guarantees success (eventually)?

You have three boxes filled with candies. One jar is filled with banana candies, one jar is filled with lemon candies and one jar has apple candies.. All the jars are mislabelled (i.e. all the jars have wrong labels about what kind of candies they contain).

All the candies look very similar in shape, size and color and they even smell the same. The only way to distinguish them is by tasting.

You have to eat one and only one candy to determine the correct jar labels. You can eat that one candy from any jar you want as long as you eat only one in total.
