This fantasy logic problem where words have alternate meanings (usually related t homonyms)
You saw the table in half; but the two halves together; two halves make a whole (hole) and you crawl out through the hole.
Here is another one for you:

don't think so....sound proof =absorb sound; not resist sound.
But if you managed to build a device that moves at the resident frequency the matriel you can explode a room.

..resonant frequency of the material..

there, partially fixed that for you.

but there is still something wrong with that, Materials don't have resonant frequencies, Objects do. Two pieces of similar metal of different lengths have different resonant frequencies.



don't think so....sound proof =absorb sound; not resist sound.

It doesn't state in the question that the room is sound proof, and if you did that wouldn't you explode also.



No, it doesn't actually "explode". The sound waves eventually bore holes and crumble the walls. Sound was used as a weapon in WW2, it destroyed whole buildings in minutes.

Ok, first you start out with ONLY a saw and a table, then all of a sudden you ONLY have a mirror, where did that come from and what happened to the saw where you could acctually saw the rope.

You guys this is not a logic puzzle. This is a play on words puzzle. you can think and think and the answer will be the same. admit you didn't get it and move on. you are still smart. I didn't get it either.

It was originally a mirror and a table, and I'll tell you the answer to that one.

You look in the mirror and see what you saw. You take the saw and cut the table in half. Two halves make a whole. You escape through the hole and yell yourself hoarse. You get on the horse and ride away!

See how easy that was?
