I loved the original Hats on a death row puzzle very much. While imagining of its actual implementation, I came across this scenario!!

Suppose Everyone was prepared to follow the odd-even method (Red meant even no. or red hats). Then the king randomly arranges the people. Unfortunately (unfortunate for Mr. X to have only 50% chance), Mr. X was set the last in the row. When asked about his hat color he said--"Red". Fortunately enough he was saved.
Then the second last, Mr. Wise (it is he who invented this method) answered "Blue". But, god knows why, he was killed for not Answering the color of his hat. Suppose you are the third last man and you see even no. of red hat in front of you.

This type of questions are very stupid.They have infinitely many correct answer. Its just a matter of being creative and telling your solution.
I hate these questions and I regret that I tried one attempt answer.

(A funny thing. I posted above comment in another thread by mistake and I was heavily scolded!!!! )

I think we are supposed to find out any of these type of words
--??*?flag*??
--g??*??fla
--ag??*??fl
Then one of the answer is simply "FLAG" itself, as the previous poster has pointed out.

Your intention might be to allow square-roots but you didn't mention that in the original questions. You simply said roots. And you denied some of the answers by pointing out that they used fortieths root and hence used the not-given number forty. Similarly can't I argue that you used twoth root and hence used the not-given number 2?

I know you could have always escaped this problem by using the term "square-root", rather than just "root" in your OP.

Links1219955 I am not satisfied with your answer. You lack the explanation for, cut wrist, rope around the neck, and smoking gun in the hand. And still you claim your answer to be the correct one. Simply because the questioner is telling the answer,the answer can't be right.

Is the initial lock numbers of the four locks same ,or different ,or is it that we don't know about it at all?
if the locks don't necessarily have same/all diferent initial code... then,... I think, if you try to unlock a lock and if you fail, then it randomize again. So, I don't see how you could be ever be sure to unlock it in any finite no. of tries. You may try to unlock it for infinitly many times, yet come out to be unlucky each time. Since, you have put your question so long and confident, I must be taking some wrong assumption, is it?

mathmazic congratulations, you have atleast seen the 3d. But I think you are seeing not what the picture intends to show. Your method of seeing the 3d picture is just opposite. You are focusing at points between the screen and your eyes, so that the two dots appear to be 3. But what you have to do is focus beneath the screen. This time also, the two dots should become 3 or in your words they should meet. Try it, and you won't use the tem hexagon. Thre is no hexagonal shape anywhere. There is a perfect cube.
(your viewing technique is what is called cross-eyed vision. And what I told you to do is parallel vision. There are stereograms that reveals when one type of vision is used. This stereogram demands parallel vision. )
(To make it demand cross-eye vision use a paint program to flip it horizontally, it thats it)

bonanova, you said: No, patient wishes to be exposed to the glove worn by another doctor. Does this mean the patient won't like to be exposed to the glove worn by a doctor even if the outside surface of the glove is fresh? If he won't deny in this case, then I would like to clarify my above slolution.

A 3d picture (stereogram) is that picture that appears 3d when you look at them properly.
There are different types of them. (Google "stereogram" for details and many other pictures). Here is what is called auto-stereogram or free-view stereogram.

to view it, what you have to do is, focus your eyes behind the image. The depth below the image you need to focus is apporximately equal to the distance of your eyes from the image.
When you start seeing the image blur, don't stop. Try to search something in the flur. Then the 3d image will pop out, and you start appreciating it.
When i say 3d image, its not like the computer disigned 3d-characters or building like 3d. Its a REAL 3d. you can tell what part of the image is how far from you.
To understand what I mean by this, see this example.
Suppose there are two cubes, one very big but far away from you and one small but near to you. When you put these side-by-side, and take a photo, then both cube appear to be of same size. When the photo is printed no-one (except the one who took the photo) can tell that they are infact not of equal size and that one is very near and other is far from the camera.
However, if you look the cubes from the point where the camera had been placed, you can always say that one cube is very near you (since you have to adjust your eye's focus distance, which tells your brain about the relative distance) and the other is very far, so you naturally realize that the cube are of very unequal dimensions.
Samething happenS when you see a REAL 3d picture (like the one i have been talking about).YOU FEEL THE DEPTH.
