  1. He needs two additional men

    all start with 4 days of food
    at the end of day one all of the men have used up one of their supply days. one of the men gives one of his supplies to each of the other two and travels safely home with the one he is left with. at the end of day two the first man is back at home and the others are left with three days of supplies again. This time the man gives one day of supplies to mr rawat and uses the remaining two to get home. Mr rawat now has 3 days of trip and 3 days of supplies so he can safely cross

  6. ZERO is "The fewest number of other men required to help". I'm very surprised that in 1 1/2 years no one else has gotten the correct answer. Mr. Rawat alone can carry food out into the desert and leave it, then return home for more food, then go out further and leave it, etc., until he has enough stored to complete the journey. Each day, he leaves home with 4 days' worth. He starts the ordeal by taking 2 days' worth of food out to the 1/6th point and returns home, since he uses 1 day's worth to get there and 1 to get back. Next, he does the same thing, now having 4 days' worth stored there. On the next trip out, he ends with 7 days' worth there, since he doesn't return home again. Then he uses 4 of the 7 to store 2 at the 2/6th point and return to the 1/6th point, where he had left 3. Lastly, he takes those to the 2/6th point, giving him the 4 he needs to go 4 days to finish the desert crossing.

  7. What about if it takes nine days to cross the dessert and another nine days to go back. You can only have 12 days of food supply each. The maximum is 2 men
