Smiling Guards Puzzle


Two guards were on duty outside a barracks. One faced up the road to watch for anyone approaching from the North. The other looked down the road to see if anyone approached from the South. Suddenly one of them said to the other, “Why are you smiling?”

How did he know his companion was smiling?

    The guards were standing face-to-face, looking at opposite directions. So, they could see each other’s face.
