There is a kingdom and in the kingdom when you drink a poison the only way to cure yourself is to drink a stronger poison to neutralize it. The King wants to make the strongest poison possible in order to make sure he can neutralize any other poison he may be given. To do this he enlists the two best chemists of the land: Tushar and Boman.

The king is going to have them both create a poison as strong as they can then have them drink the other person's poison then their own. Whoever dies created the weaker poison. Tushar knows that Boman is much better at making poisons and he is sure to make a stronger poison. Knowing this, Tushar makes a plan that ensures he lives and Boman dies.

The day of the contest arrives and Boman realizes that Tushar must have known he had no chance against his prowess as a poison maker. So Boman thinks quickly and creates a new plan that ensures that once again he will live and Tushar will die.

In the end Boman lives, Tushar dies, and the King doesn't get what he wants.

What happened?

After Tushar realized he was going to lose, he finds that the only way to live is to replace his poison with something that isn't poison at all and drink a poison of his own before the contest. In this way he drinks his own weaker poison then neutralizes it with Bomans stronger poison. Last he drinks the non-poison he submitted to the contest.

Once Boman realizes that this is the only way Tushar can save himself he figures out that he can save himself by either drinking a weaker poison before the contest so his neutralizes it in the contest or submit a non-poison to the contest as well. If he drinks a weaker poison before the contest both Tushar and Boman will live and the King will realize that they are disobeying his orders which probably won't turn out well. But by submitting a non-poison to the contest as well Tushar will end up drinking the weaker poison before the contest and the two non-poisons in the contest and he will still die, and the King will be none the wiser (although he will not get what he wants being that both of the poisons actually aren't poisons at all).

On six feet, I am a noxious drink,
Of whose effects you shudder to think.
Change only my second foot, and then
You convert me into a horrible den
Where the culprit, who gave the noxious drink,
Awaits the fate of which you shudder to think.

A man from Switzerland is stuck in Germany during the World War II.

The only way to escape is to cross a bridge over a river from Germany to Switzerland.

There is a sentry beside the bridge who comes out every three minutes.

If the man goes from Germany to Switzerland, he will be shot.

It takes six minutes to walks & four minutes if he runs.
How does the man escape?
