A Japanese ship was en route in the open sea. The Japanese captain went for a shower removing his diamond ring and Rolex watch on the table. When he returned, his valuables were missing.
The Captain immediately called five suspected crew members and asked each one where and what he was doing for the last 15 minutes.
The Phillipino cook (in a heavy overcoat): I was in fridge room getting meat for cooking.
The Indian Engineer (with a torch in hand): I was working on generator engine.
The Sri Lankan seaman: I was on the mast correcting the flag which was upside down by mistake.
The British Radio officer: I was messaging to company that we are reaching next port in 72 hrs from now, that is Wednesday morning at 1000 hrs.
The British navigation officer: I am on night watch, so I was sleeping in my cabin.

The captain caught the liar. So who is the thief?

The Sri Lankan seaman.

Explanation:

The Sri Lankan seaman said that he was correcting the flag which was upside down, what he didn’t realize was that the Japanese ship has a Japanese flag which looks the same even when it is upside down. So he was definitely, lying about his whereabouts.

So the captain would easily conclude that he was the killer.

Two nights ago at a dinner party, Mr. Mentum was killed by one of his guests. Detective Dens was put on the case and took statements. But the good detective is getting a tooth pulled today so you, a rookie officer, are called in to take on his case. From his notes you glean the following information about people's whereabouts and potential murder weapons:

Names: Fawn, Jake, Kyle, Lance, Sara
Rooms: bedroom, conservatory, dining room, observatory, sitting room
Weapons: candlestick, gun, knife, poison, rope

Either Lance was in the dining room, or the man with the knife was in the sitting room.
Either Jake had the rope, or Lance was in the observatory.
Either Kyle was in the conservatory, or Jake was in the bedroom.
The five suspects are Sara, the person in the bedroom, the person in the dining room, the person with the rope, and the person with the knife.
The woman with the poison was not in the dining room.
The rope was in the sitting room, and the gun was in the bedroom.

After some intense scrutinizing and a couple cups of coffee, you take your solution of each person's location and weapon of choice to the police. Since the body was found in the observatory, they know just who to bring in for extra questioning.

One day, all the courtiers from Akbar's court were gathered in the assembly hall when one of them told the Emperor that all his valuables had been stolen by a thief the previous night.

This shocked the Emperor to his core as the place where that courter stayed was the most secured in the kingdom. The Emperor thought that it is not at all possible for an outsider to enter into the courtier's house and steal the valuables. Only another courtier could commit this crime. He quickly called Birbal to identify the thief.

Birbal thought for a while and successfully solved the mystery by identifying the thief in just one statement. What did Birbal say?
