Question

Posted · Report post

After his death, Mr. John Bull's soul arrived the gate of Heaven. Now, all his well-doings and sins are weighted and calculated, and they became equal. So, the "heaven incharge" asked him to solve a riidle. He said-

"Mr. Bull, You can see the gate of heaven. At the opposite is the gate of hell. There is one guard at each of the gates. Of this two guards, one always speaks the truth and the other always lies. You dont know who is guarding which gate. You are permitted to ask any one of the guards a single question to find out which is the gate of heaven. If you can do this, we will send you to heaven."

WHAT QUESTION CAN MR. BULL ASK TO ANY OF THOSE GUARDS TO FIND OUT THE HEAVEN'S DOOR?

Would the other guard tell me the gate behind you leads to heaven, etc.

4 states:

Liar guarding heaven : answer no

Truth teller guarding heaven answer no

Liar guarding hell: answer yes

Truth guarding hell: answer yes

Always choose the gate opposite.

This is similar to a few that have been posted on here.

"If I ask the other guard, which gate will he tell me he's guarding?"

And no matter what the answer is, the reality is the opposite...
