### Situation Puzzle

Situation Puzzle - 27 August

3 surgeons decided to go for a camp and hired a guide for assistance. Over campfire , they met with an accident and the guide got seriously injured. The guide needs surgery(a minor one). The 3 surgeons decide to operate but they have only two medical gloves. To save the guide , all three surgeons are needed to operate on the guide, in sequence.
How can this be done without any of them being exposed to the blood of any of the others?

1. ist one will wear gloves and operate and 2nd one will reverse d gloves and do operation and third one will do

2. The first surgeon operates with the first glove (glove A) inside the second glove (glove B). The second surgeon operates using just glove B. The third surgeon operates using glove A, turned inside out, inside glove B."

1. that iz a total cut-copy-paste answer of the solution

3. A good but known puzzle, for unknowns it require lateral thinking to come to the solution.

4. This is wrong since surgeons wear gloves on both hands when they operate. They don't operate one handed.

1. true logic...

5. A surgeon's hand will not bleed when he operates, so why should his blood ever end up inside his glove? And if the surgeons are concerned of the patient's blood (which can only be on the outside of a glove), they must just be very careful when one surgeon takes off his gloves and passes them on to the next one.

I'd say the first surgeon puts on both gloves, operates, and then uses one glove to pull the other one off. Then the 3rd surgeon holds the free glove open with his two index fingers so that the second surgeon can get his first hand into it without touching its outside (a bit tricky, but good surgeons are good with their hands, so they'll manage). Then the second surgeon, now already wearing one glove (and thus able to touch blood), can pull off the other glove from the first surgeon's hand, which is then held open by the third one again for him to get his second hand inside. Same procedure (with swapped characters) for the last surgeon.

1. Completely agree. I hate logic puzzles invented for the sake of logic with no reasonable grounding in reality...
