A man is on his death bed. He has two sons. All these years, he has treated them equally and has not put any sort of discrimination between them. Now, he owns a land which he wants to divide equally between his sons before he takes his final breath. The only problem is that the land is not in any symmetrical shape and thus can’t simply be divided into two equal halves.

Can you figure out a method to divide the land without going through all the extensive measurements such that both sons are happy with their share of land ?

The king dies and two men, the true heir and an impostor, both claim to be his long-lost son. Both fit the description of the rightful heir: about the right age, height, coloring and general appearance.

Finally, one of the elders proposes a test to identify the true heir. One man agrees to the test while the other flatly re-fuses. The one who agreed is immediately sent on his way, and the one who re-fused is correctly identified as the rightful heir.

Can you figure out why?
