There are 20 priests in a temple. One day, Lord Shiva appears before them and tells them that some of them have sinned, and that a black spot would appear on the forehead of all the priests who have sinned. The priests are not allowed to look into a mirror or communicate with each other. When any priest finds out that there is a spot on his forehead, he should leave the temple on that day itself. At least 1 priest has sinned. How can a priest find out whether he has a spot on his forehead.
What would be the pattern of the priests leaving the temple?
