Question

Posted · Report post

A contest is fixed. Everyone knows it, including the contestants. One of the contestants, however, makes it to the final round.

The master of ceremonies presents the following challenge:

"this box contains two slips of paper. One says 'winner' the other says 'loser' you have to select the one that says winner without looking. The contestant knows the challenge is fixed so he relizes that both slips say 'loser'. How can he select one slip and win the challenge?

he cant declare the contest a fraud because hed lose what he has already won.

If the two slips are supposed to say "Winner" and "Loser" then he simply picks either slip. He then insists that they read the leftover slip. If the leftover slip says "Winner", it would imply he lost. If is says "Loser" than he wins.

Just eat one slip, and make all to see the other.

thats right, if he exposes the fraud he will lose all his money.

if i were him, after i recieved my money i would expose the fraud but if i did that somebody would probably find a way to sue me.

well eating one is the right answer
