1. Three blindfolded women were seated facing each other in a circle and a red mark was placed on the forehead of each of them. They were then told that the the mark might be either red or white. Upon removal of the blindfolds, each was to raise her hand if she saw at least one red mark, and then to take it down if she could logically deduce the color of her own mark. All three hands were quickly raised, but then one of them lowered her hand. How did she know?
2.The only way to get a free drink in this bar, is to prove to the barman that you are a friend of his boss. Here's how its done. You go to the barman, he tells you a number and you tell him the "countersign" number. If your answer is correct you get your drink. HERE'S WHAT YOU HEARD: The barman says "12" to the first man, he says "6" and got his drink. The barman said "6" to the second man, who replied "3" and got his drink. Now its your turn. "4", said the barman. What is the counter sign?
3. How can you express the number 48 using 1,6,8 and 9?
If you can answer these three questions, you just might be the greatest puzzler in India. And guess what? We, at IIM Calcutta are on a quest to find just that!
