Question

Posted · Report post

A princess falls in love with a lowly stable boy. The king can not stand to see his daughter marry a commoner, but he also can't say no to her. He proposes a deal. He says that they will all go down to the beach where he will select 2 stones - one white and one black. He will put them both in a bag and allow the princess to reach into the bag and select one, without looking. If she picks the white, the king will allow the marriage. If she picks the black, there will be no wedding and the stable boy will be banned from the kingdom.

The princess is not happy about this, but she figures that it is the best chance she has. The king, the princess and the royal court go down to the beach. The king bends down to select the rocks, but the princess sees that instead of one white and one black, the king selects 2 black stones. This would mean that no matter which she picks, she will lose her love.

The king holds out the bag to the princess. What can she do to get her way and be with her love?

The princess should pull out a stone and throw it out to sea before anyone gets a chance to see it. They will then have to look into the bag to see what is left. There will be a black stone in the bag and everyone will assume that she must have picked the white and thrown it.

I saw something like this on the sight.

Anyway, she gets one and puts it somewhere that nobody can get it. Than, she simply tells everyone to look in the bag and the stone that is opposite from what is in the bag is the one she chose.
