Posted · Report post

So, as of before, 3 men are in a completely inclosed basement. They lock the outside so the British, who happened to be outside the door, could not get through. They also lock the door to the stairway leading to the upstairs. Let's say the man holding the key drops it down a crack in the floor. The British soon knock in the outside door. There are only 3 British officers.If, in the room, there are two poles, and each man wants to hold back one man, what could they do? [Remember, they cannot run away- the British officers are blocking the door knocked in, and the key is down a crack in the floor.]

[if you would like to make things more difficult, lets say they want to get out of the basement. Remember- the key is down a crack. If there is nothing else BESIDES the two poles in the basement, what would they do?]

Um? What kind of lock are we talking about? Key tumbler lock was invented in 1778 in England, meaning that wasn't available in this war.
