Colored Duct Tapes : Hostage Terror


Best Answer bushindo, 11 February 2013 - 03:13 AM

Seven International Hostages are lined up in a row .Some are standing or sitting ,
facing backward or forward.All were blindfolded with different colored duct tapes 
and ordered not to move. None has any information about the other hostages.
 
The terrorist leader announced to the nationals before him on the speakers that.. 
they shall all be released if they all can guess  their blindfold's color correctly 
which are  in the order as ff :  Red  Orange Yellow  Green  Blue  Violet   White 
                                            
Chi   has  2 hostages facing backward on his right, 3 sitting down on his right. 
Jap  has  2 hostages facing forward on his left, 3 standing up on his left                     
Fra   has  1 hostage facing backward on his right, 3 standing up on his left.                                           
Rus  has  3 hostages facing backward on his left, 2 sitting down on his left.                        
Eng  has  2 hostages facing forward on his right, 3 sitting down on his right.                      
Ger  has  2 hostages  facing forward on his left, 1 standing up on his right.                  
Spa  has  2 hostages facing backward on his left, 2 standing up on his left
 
In 60 seconds 1 hostage should raise both his  tied hands then will be pulled
behind the row and  will be shot in the head right on the spot in case he fails
to shout the correct color of his blindfold .The other  nationals  will share the 
same fate. If he is right, all the others should not fail or else everyone is going 
to die. If none of them will guess in a minute all will remain hostages..
 
Who would first raise his hands?
