Algorithmic thinking is really important as it enhances your thinking skills and can be nurtured with practice. (Refer the previous tutorial to know more about Algorithmic Thinking and try the puzzles before moving on to the solutions.)
Explanation: Ram sends the box with the lock to Shyam.
Shyam can’t open it but can put another lock on the box.
Shyam sends this box with the 2 locks back to Ram who unlocks his lock and sends it back to Shyam again.
So there is just Shyam’s lock on the box and Shyam can now open it.
Solving these puzzles is fun, isn’t it? So, wear your logic caps and get ready for your next brain workout:
Quiz 9.1 – Guess the Shirt Color
Mr. Red, Mr. Blue, and Mr. White meet for lunch in a restaurant. All of them are wearing either a red, blue, or white shirt. Mr. Blue says, “Did you guys notice that all of us are wearing different colored shirts from our names?” The man wearing the white shirt says, “Wow, Mr. Blue, that’s right!” Can you tell who is wearing what color shirt?
Just think about it and post your answer in the comments. I’ll explain this in the next tutorial.
A bridge will collapse in 17 minutes. 4 people want to cross it before it will collapse. Only two people can cross the bridge at the same time and it’s a dark night so they need a torch. Since they only have a single torch, so one person needs to come back with the torch. Time taken by two people to cross the bridge is equal to the time taken by the slower one.
“A” takes a minute to cross. “B” takes 2 minutes. “C” takes 5 and “D” takes 10 minutes
How do they all cross before the bridge collapses?
Just think about the various scenarios and post your answer in the comments.
