  • You met three Monsters. One always tells the truth, other one always lies and the last one alternates between lie and truth.
    Monster 1: You may ask us one question, then you must guess which dragon is which
    Monster 2: He is lying. You may get three questions
    Monster 3: Oh no It is definitely one question
    You asked the first Monster a question
    You: What would the second Monster say if you were to ask it if the 3rd dragon had been lying when it agreed with the first one that you could ask only one question
    Monster 1: He’d say, “Yes, the 3rd Monster was lying”
    Then you asked a second question addressing the three Monsters…… But they remained silent.
    And, you solved the puzzle in 90 sec.
    So, which dragon is which?
