A man is trapped in a room with 2 indistinguishable doors, each with a guard standing in front of the door. One door will lead to death and the other will lead to freedom One of the guards will always tell the truth, the other will always lie. The man is allowed to ask each guard 1 question, however the man must ask both guards the same question. What is the question the man asks and how does he interpret the results to decide which door leads to freedom? Once the man makes his decision, he is allowed to leave with no resistance.

That isn't really a question with an answer, so the answer can't be either true or false.

But nowhere it is mentioned in question that the guards know which door they are guarding.

That is the correct answer.

Sorry, that can't work because you speak to a guard twice
