1. Think about these

For number 3: The answer to this question is called an infinite regression because there is but isn't a definite answer for this. It's just like the Liar Paradox. The question asks that you or a man take on a mission in which he has to not accept the mission and if he would accept the mission. This is the infinite regression answer as follows:

(In first person perspective) If I accept the mission, then I am not accepting the mission, but if I am not accepting the mission, then I have already taken the mission, in which I haven't accepted the mission because I have just accepted the mission but because I have accepted the mission, I haven't accepted the mission, but I have accepted the mission by not accepting the mission, but.............

This answer goes on forever and doesn't stop which makes it an infinite regression answer.

2. Crocodile Sophism

I would think that the only way to make ANY sense of the situation is for the woman to repeat back to the croc EXACTLY what he said to HER: "If I guess right, you'll give my baby back, if I dont, you'll eat him. That's what you'll do to him." He'd have to return the baby, because she's CORRECT NO MATTER WHAT. Eh? hehehe

ur statement seems partially true

had the croc's st8ment been like

"If you guess, what I will do with him", I will return him

so the mother could repeat "if you guess, what will I do with him" and the croc wud return the kid

but the quote includes the words " I will return him" so the logic doesnt work

I think the mother could say anything to retrieve the chiild

since all the croc wants is the mother to "GUESS"

he dint say predict the fate or speak the truth or sumthin liek that

so the mother could go on and guess anything random related to the child in order to save him

I highly agree with both of these answers because from what you are both saying corresponds with each other. Now, I see where Cyrx is coming from that all the mother has to do is guess her childs fate, but in all technicality J man is also right because if that was the statement that the mother gave, then it was a guess so the answer that J man put is correct but it corresponds with Cyrx's answer which is also correct.
