Suppose I am giving you a two wheeler,
It has one front wheel and one rear wheel,
Now I am giving you one more wheel (extra wheel)
So now total you have 3 wheels,
Each wheel can travel 5 kms and after that wheel will burst.
Then what will be the maximum distance that you can travel with this two wheeler.

Note :- You can interchange all 3 wheels with each other to travel longer distance.

The third wheel adds half of its life to the other two, so total distance can be traveled 5 km + 5km / 2=7.5 km
This can be achieved by changing wheels every 2.5 km

A research team went to a village somewhere between the jungles of Africa. Luckily for them, they reached on the day when quite an interesting custom was to be performed. The custom was performed once in a year as they confirmed and was performed in order to collect the taxes from every male of the region.

The taxes were to be paid in the form of grains. Everyone must pay pounds of grain equaling his respective age. Which means a 20 year old will have to pay 20 pounds of grains and a 30 years old will pay 30 pounds of grain and so on.
