There were 2 doors. Behind the 1 door, is hell and behind the other door, is heaven but you don't know which door will take you to heaven. In front of them, there were 2 brothers, which is guarding the door. One of the brother always lie and the other one always tell the truth. Of course you don't know who is lying and who is not. You only get 1 question to ask one of them to figure out which door leads to heaven. What question you might ask? Remember you only get to ask 1 question. it means that you can't ask one question each of them. that will be 2 questions. You only ask 1 question to any of them and no more. How do you do that?

Gyani baba is fond of giving new theories about stars. He discovered that there are two type of stars in this universe; one “X” type and another “Y” type stars. In one of his theories about these stars, he states that if n “X” type of stars collide with m “Y” type of stars, the collision results to formation of (m+n ) new “Y” type of stars, elimination of previous n “X” type of stars, and change of type from “Y” to “X” of previous “Y” type of stars. He termed this whole phenomenon as a “Big Bang”. The phenomenon is governed by following rules:

  • All the stars collide together at once.
  • Further “Big Bang” may occur only after one “Big Bang” has happened. No two ‘Big Bang’s can happen at the same instant .
  • The next “Big Bang” can only occur if all the products from previous “Big Bang” collides together.
  • In the year 1800A.D., people on the earth were able to count the total no. of stars in the universe. The total count of stars was 144 in the whole universe.

Find the total no. of “Big Bangs” happened till then, if initially there were only 2 stars?
