• Three men in a cafe order a meal, the total cost of which is \$15. They each contribute \$5. The waiter takes the money to the chef who recognizes the three as friends and asks the waiter to return \$5 to the men.

The waiter is not only poor at mathematics but dishonest and instead of going to the trouble of splitting the \$5 between the three he simply gives them \$1 each and pockets the remaining \$2 for himself.

Now, each of the men effectively paid \$4, the total paid is therefore \$12. Add the \$2 in the waiters pocket and this comes to \$14…..where has the other \$1 gone from the original \$15?

• A road is divided into two ways.  One leads to City of truth and the other leads to City of Lies. All the people belonging to City of Truth always tell truth and all the people belonging to City of Lies  always lie.

There are two people standing at the division,  one from City of Truth and the other from City of Lies. You don’t know who belongs to which city.
You can ask only one question to any one of the two people standing there to determine which way leads to the City of Truth and which leads to City of Lies.
