# Dangerous adventure riddle

John is on a dangerous adventure in the jungle. Suddenly an extremely poisonous snake bites him. Luckily, he has his medicines with him against this deadly snake poison: two bottles, labelled A and B, containing three pills each. Exactly three times, with an interval of 2 hours, he needs to swallow simultaneously both a pill A and a pill B. In a rush, he takes a pill from bottle A and then shakes a pill from bottle B with it. However, unfortunately two pills B fall from the bottle and they look completely identical to pill A. He cannot tell which of the three pills is A and which two are B. Stan is desperate: if he does not take the pills exactly as prescribed, it will be fatal.

How can John survive?

Take another pill from bottle A. Now, he has 4 pills(2 A,2B) break each pill in half and take each half the tablet at a time, he can take another half after 2 hours.

this is just modified version of puzzle I answered earlier this is bad for such site

There are a lot of puzzles posted a multiple times on this site.

And I agree that it is a bad thing, especially when it happens within a couple of days/weeks.

Also not supplying the correct answer after a couple of days/weeks is a bad thing.
