You are accused of murder. The judge says, "I will ask you a question. Answer truthfully, and you will be shot. Answer falsley, and you will be executed." You answer the question and don't die. What is the judge's question? Why does this keep you alive?

There is a variation on this question. Since shot and executed are homologous, its better to pose the dilemma as follows. Answer the truth and you will be shot, answer false and you will be hanged.. Then the question is pretty straight forward. "How will you die?" asks the judge. You respond " I'll be hanged" which clearly saves your from execution!
