Cross from riverbank A to riverbank B with she-goat, leaving wolf and cabbage (safe).
Cross B to A empty.
Cross A to B with wolf and exchange for she-goat, leaving wolf on B.
Cross B to A with she-goat and exchange for cabbage, leaving she-goat on A.
Cross A to B with cabbage and leave it with wolf (safe).
Cross B to A empty.
Cross A to B with she-goat - now all 3 are across the river and nothing was eaten.

He should take the goat, go back and get the wolf. Leave the wolf and take the goat back and leave her while he takes the cabbage; leave the cabbage with the wolf and go back for the goat.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! I can picture all of you being in the same room, shouting all at the same time, bragging who's got the "right" answer but noone is listening.
6 pages already filled with the same answer and people still keep answering the same thing over and over.
Amazing how human minds work.

That seems unnecessarily complicated, I came up with leaving the wolf and cabbage on the other side then bringing the she-goat. By the way, why doe's it have to be a she-goat?

1.First you would take the she goat across the river (wolf won't eat cabbage)
2. Go back and then bring the wolf across the river, take the goat back across with you (so the wolf won't eat the she goat)
3. leave the she goat, take the cabbage then return for the goat.

Let us take the bank frm where the she-goat, wolf and cabbage have to be taken across the river as 1st bank and the desired bank to be reached as 2nd bank..............carry the she-goat frm the 1st bank to the 2nd bank drop her there and *** back to 1st bank.........then carry the cabbage to the 2nd bank put it there and bring back the goat to the 1st bank........thereafter, bring the wolf to the 2nd bank........now go back to the 1st bank and bring the goat to the 2nd bank.......and hence all the three are at the 2nd safe and secure....

I think
if the wolf and the she-goat are dead or cabbage is rotten,
you can handle with them easily.
If they are alive, you can kill them by oars of the boat.
