A pack of cards has 40 cards. You are blindfolded. Out of 40, 25 cards are facing down while 15 are facing up. You have been asked to divide this pack of cards into two decks - so that each deck contains an equal number of face up cards. Remember, you are blindfolded.

How will you do it?

Some cards from an ordinary pack of playing cards were laid out on a table with face upwards. I thought of one card there, The KING OF HEARTS. I announced that I would tell Mr. A the value and Mr. B the suit of my chosen card. I whispered to Mr. A that I had chosen a KING and whispered to Mr. B that I had chosen a HEART. Their subsequent discussion went as below:

A: “I do not know the card that was chosen”

B: “I knew you would not”

A: “I still do not know the card, but at least I can now work out its colour”

B: “Now at last I can work out what card it is”

A: “So can I”
