9. Questions

10. This comment has been removed by the author.

11. you ask them who you are

12. Ask what the other would say and choose the opposite door

1. Thank you! Damn lol

13. You ask them how many fingers do i have?
The one telling the truth would say 10
The one telling a lie would say anything but 10

1. But you have no idea which guardian is guarding which door. I.e. the truth teller could be guarding the door to hell. All this would do is tell you who is lying, which in itself is useless.

14. Are you a guard?

15. which door should another guard choose? he asked

16. In your answer to this riddle you did not include what the question would be.

17. Ask one of them how many doors are there and then choose the other if he gives a different number than there are doors.

18. Ive seen nothing about entering a door where do you get this

19. Try reading it this way..maybe it makes more sense since this does not tell you the exact question you need to ask.

"If I asked the other guardian which door leads to heaven, what would he tell me?"

The door that the guardian specifies will be the one that leads to hell, so you know the other one leads to heaven.

This is because if you asked the guardian who tells the truth this question, he will tell the truth in that the other guardian will lie, and show you the door to hell. If you asked the guardian that always lies, he will lie by showing you the door to hell, because the other guardian would show you to door to heaven.

20. Does your chewing gum lose its flavour on the bedpost overnight?

21. Which way is the door of death? you would ask this because the one who lies will say the opposite one and the one who says truth would tell you which one it is

22. You ask either man, “What door would the other man tell me to go through to stay alive?” Then you choose the opposite door, no matter who tells you.
Basically the liar is going to lie and lead you to the death door. The honest guy is going to tell you that the liar would lead you through the death door.

23. I know what this riddle says the answer should be and, on its face, it sounds like it should make sense, but in practice, it doesn't work because, with this theory, it would require that the liar tell the truth at some point - or, that the truth teller lie. For instance, If you ask the liar to tell you what the truth teller would say where the truth teller's door leads, the liar would have to say "to hell," because that's a lie. If you asked the truth teller to tell you what the liar would say where the liar's door leads, the truth teller would have to say, "to heaven," because the truth teller knows the liar would lie and, for the truth teller, that would be the truth. So, with this form of the question, you have no answer. If you asked the liar to tell you what the truth teller would say about where the liar's door leads, the liar would have to say, "to heaven," because that's a lie. If you asked the truth teller to tell you what the liar would say about where the truth teller's door leads, the truth teller would have to say "to hell," because the truth teller knows the liar would lie and, for the truth teller, he would be telling the truth. So, no matter how you formulated the question based on this theory, you still would never get an answer. If you still don't understand this, get two people. Designate one the truth teller and one the liar and play it out.

24. Ask the Guard on the left side this question: "Yes or No, would the right side guard tell me that the left side door leads to heaven?"

If the Left guard answers “Yes”, then the right door leads to Heaven and the left door leads to Hell.

Explanation:

If Left Guard is the truthful Guard, he knows the lying guard will lie to you. So he MUST answer your question truthfully and say:
“YES, He will tell you the left side door leads to Heaven.”

That is the truth telling guards "truthful" answer to your question describing what the lie will be from the lying guard. So it means the left door does not lead to Heaven, but instead to Hell.

If Left Guard is the Lying Guard, then he will lie to you and say: (the same answer)
“YES, He will tell you the left side door leads to Heaven.”

That is the lie telling guards "Lying" answer to your question describing a lie that he knows the "truth" telling guard could not and would not tell you. So it means the left door does not lead to Heaven, but instead to Hell.

If the left side guard answers the question "No", then the opposite is correct. His left side door leads to heaven and the right side to hell.
