Toughest Riddles 4 : Aeroplane Hardest Quiz
Popularity ★★★★★


The puzzle question is : On Bagshot Island, there is an airport. The airport is the homebase of an unlimited number of identical airplanes. Each airplane has a fuel capacity to allow it to fly exactly 1/2 way around the world, along a great circle. The planes have the ability to refuel in flight without loss of speed or spillage of fuel. Though the fuel is unlimited, the island is the only source of fuel.
What is the fewest number of aircraft necessary to get one plane all the way around the world assuming that all of the aircraft must return safely to the airport? How did you get to your answer?
Notes:
(a) Each airplane must depart and return to the same airport, and that is the only airport they can land and refuel on ground.
(b) Each airplane must have enough fuel to return to airport.
(c) The time and fuel consumption of refueling can be ignored. (so we can also assume that one airplane can refuel more than one airplanes in air at the same time.)
(d) The amount of fuel airplanes carrying can be zero as long as the other airplane is refueling these airplanes. What is the fewest number of airplanes and number of tanks of fuel needed to accomplish this work? (we only need airplane to go around the world)

      Once upon a time, in the West Lake village, a servant lived with his master. After service of 30 years, his master became ill and was going to die. One day, the master called his servant and offered him for a wish. It could be any wish but just one. The master gave him one day to think about it. The servant became very happy and went to his mother to discuss the wish. His mother was blind and she asked her son to wish for her eye-sight to come back. Next, the servant went to his wife. She became very excited and asked for a son as they were childless for many years. After that, the servant went to his father who wanted to be rich and so he asked his son to wish for a lot of money. The next day he went to his master and made one wish through which all the three (mother, father, wife) got what they wanted. What was his wish?

  25. for everyone that thinks their good at puzzles/riddles answer this

    i wants a shirt that costs £97 I lend 50 pound off person 1 and the same off person 2 with the 3 pound change I give 1 pound back to each person and keep the other pound so I owe them 49 pound each which in total is 98 pound if you add the pound I kept its 99 pound but I lent 100 in total so wheres the other pound gone

    ReplyDelete
  26. For 100 pound: You took 50 pound each from them, After returning 2 pound you are left with 49*2 = 98 Pounds. The third pound that you are adding is a part already included in 98. so if u want a total of 100, u need to add 2 pounds that u returned each of them.
