Two old friends, Jack and Bill, meet after a long time.

Three kids

Jack: Hey, how are you man?

Bill: Not bad, got married and I have three kids now.

Jack: That"s awesome. How old are they?

Bill: The product of their ages is 72 and the sum of their ages is the same as your birth date.

Jack: Cool..But I still don"t know.

Bill: My eldest kid just started taking piano lessons.

Jack: Oh now I get it.

How old are Bill"s kids?

Answer & Explanation

3,3,8

Lets break it down. The product of their ages is 72. So what are the possible choices?

2, 2, 18 sum(2, 2, 18) = 22

2, 4, 9 sum(2, 4, 9) = 15

2, 6, 6 sum(2, 6, 6) = 14

2, 3, 12 sum(2, 3, 12) = 17

3, 4, 6 sum(3, 4, 6) = 13

3, 3, 8 sum(3, 3, 8 ) = 14

1, 8, 9 sum(1,8,9) = 18

1, 3, 24 sum(1, 3, 24) = 28

1, 4, 18 sum(1, 4, 18) = 23

1, 2, 36 sum(1, 2, 36) = 39

1, 6, 12 sum(1, 6, 12) = 19

The sum of their ages is the same as your birth date. That could be anything from 1 to 31 but the fact that Jack was unable to find out the ages, it means there are two or more combinations with the same sum. From the choices above, only two of them are possible now.

2, 6, 6 sum(2, 6, 6) = 14

3, 3, 8 sum(3, 3, 8 ) = 14

Since the eldest kid is taking piano lessons, we can eliminate combination 1 since there are two eldest ones. The answer is 3, 3 and 8.

I have mixed 13 decks of cards.

What is the minimum number of cards must be taken out from the above mixed cards to guarantee at least one 'four of a kind'.

Answer & Explanation

13 x 3 + 1 = 40

Explanation:

The number of decks is irrelevant i.e any number of decks can be mixed and still the answer would be same.

Any card drawn will be a Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen or King, so there are 13 possibilities each time a card is drawn.

The fastest and luckiest way would need just 4 cards of the same kind.

The slowest way is our solution as it will guarantee a four of a kind.

i.e draw 3 of each kind =>39 cards will be fetched. now next card will guarantee 4 of a kind.

Like an usual car, my new i10 car has 5 wheels(2 front + 2 Rear + 1 spare).

Rear wheel of car will wear out after 21000 kilometers and front wheel will wear out after 29000 kilometers.

What is the maximum distance i can cover assuming changing of wheels is not an issues.

Answer & Explanation

Maximum distance : 30,450 kilometers.

For each 5 kilometers driven using this rotation, each tire will lose (2/29000)+(2/21000) of its tread.So, suppose we drive 5*N kilometers like this. Then, each tire will lose 2*N*((1/29000)+(1/21000)) of its tread. We wish to determine N so that the latter expression gets to be 1, representing all of each tire's tread. That happens when N=6090, which is when 5*N (the total kilometers driven) is 30,450.

One evening there was a murder in the home of married couple, their son and daughter. One of these four people murdered one of the others. One of the members of the family witnessed the crime.

The other one helped the murderer.

These are the things we know for sure:

1. The witness and the one who helped the murderer were not of the same sex.

2. The oldest person and the witness were not of the same sex.

3. The youngest person and the victim were not of the same sex.

4. The one who helped the murderer was older than the victim.

5. The father was the oldest member of the family.

6. The murderer was not the youngest member of the family.

Who was the murderer?

Answer & Explanation

mother

We know from (3) that the youngest person was not the victim, from (4) that the youngest person was not the helper and from (6) that the youngest person was not the killer. The youngest person can only have been the witness therefore. If we make up a chart there are now three possible combinations:

Oldest person (father) H H M

Next to oldest (mother) V M H

Next to youngest (son) M V V

Youngest (daughter) W W W

(H = Helper ; V = Victim ; M = Murderer ; W = Witness)

We can work out from (5) that the father was the oldest, from (2) that the youngest person must have been the daughter. Therefore the next to the youngest must have been the son and the next to the oldest, the mother.

Of three possibilities: the first is impossible (from (3) Ã¢€“ the youngest person and the victim were of different sexes); the third is also impossible (from (1) Ã¢€“ the witness and the helper were of different sexes). Therefore only the second possibility holds Ã¢€“ and the mother was the murderess.

Four people need to cross a dark river at night.They have only one torch and the river is too risky to cross without the tourch. if all people cross simultanoesly then torch light wont be sufficient.Speed of each person of crossing the river is different.cross time for each person is 1 min, 2 mins, 7 mins and 10 mins. What is the shortest time needed for all four of them to cross the river ?

Answer & Explanation

The initial solution most people will think of is to use the fastest person as an usher to guide everyone across. How long would that take? 10 + 1 + 7 + 1 + 2 = 21 mins. Is that it? No. That would make this question too simple even as a warm up question.

Let's brainstorm a little further. To reduce the amount of time, we should find a way for 10 and 7 to go together. If they cross together, then we need one of them to come back to get the others. That would not be ideal. How do we get around that? Maybe we can have 1 waiting on the other side to bring the torch back. Ahaa, we are getting closer. The fastest way to get 1 across and be back is to use 2 to usher 1 across. So let's put all this together.

1 and 2 go cross

2 comes back

7 and 10 go across

1 comes back

1 and 2 go across (done)

Total time = 2 + 2 + 10 + 1 + 2 = 17 mins

There are 2 sand hourglasses.

The small one can measure 5 hours and the large one can measure 7 hours.

How can we measure 16 hours with 2 sand hourglasses running together ?

Answer & Explanation

Steps:

* Start both sand hourglasses at the same time.

* You flip over the small sand hourglass when it finishes the first 5 hours.

* Flip over the large one when it finishes its first 7 hours.

* When the small sand hourglass runs to 10 hours, flip over the small and large sand hourglass at the same time. It means the large sand hourglass will run 3 hours again. When the large sand hourglass run to 13 hours (7 + 3 + 3), flip both the small and large sand hourglass over again to run another 3 hours.

What is the probability of choosing the correct answer at random from the options below.

a) 1/4

b) 1/2

c) 1

d) 1/4

If the answer is 1/4, then because 2 out of 4 answer choices are '1/4', the answer must actually be 1/2. This is a contradiction. So the answer cannot be 1/4.

If the answer is 1/2 (or 1), then because 1/2 (or 1) is 1 out of 4 answer choices, the answer must be 1/4. This is again a contradiction. So the answer cannot be 1/2 (nor 1).

So none of the provided answer choices are correct. Therefore the probability of choosing the correct answer is 0%

Three brothers are identical triplets.

-: The oldest(my minutes) is Sanjay and he is so honest that he always tells the truth.

-: The next oldest is Anurag and he always lies.

-: The next and the youngest is Anmol and he sometimes lies and sometimes tells the truth.

Aditi, an old friend of the the brothers visited them after a long time and did not recognize them.

:- Aditi asked the brother that was sitting on the left, 'Which brother is in the middle of you three?' and the answer she received was, 'Oh, that's Sanjay.'

:- Aditi then asked the brother in the middle, 'What is your name?' The response given was, 'I am Anmol'

:- Aditi turned to the brother on the right, then asked, 'Who is that in the middle?' The brother then replied, 'He is Anurag.'

This confused Aditi; she had asked the same question three times and received three different answers.

Who was who ?

The first one cannot be Sanjay, because that would make the first one a liar. The second one cannot be Sanjay for the same reason. So, the third brother must be Sanjay. This means the middle one is Anurag and the only one left is Anmol.

A wealthy man lives alone in a small cottage. Being partially handicapped he had everything delivered to his cottage. The mailman was delivering a letter one Thursday when he noticed that the front door was ajar. Through the opening he could see the man's body lying in a pool of dried blood. When a police officer arrived he surveyed the scene. On the porch were two bottles of warm milk, Monday's newspaper, a catalog, flyers, and unopened mail. The police officer suspects it was foul play. Who does he suspect and why?

The police officer suspects the newspaper delivery person. The absence of Tuesday's and Wednesday's newspaper indicates that the delivery person knew there was no one there to read it.
