What day is it? Answer: Thursday. The only day they both tell the truth is Sunday, but today can’t be Sunday because the lion also tells the truth on Saturday (yesterday).

10. A bad guy is playing Russian roulette with a six-shooter revolver. He puts in one bullet, spins the chambers, and fires at you, but no bullet comes out. He gives you the choice of whether or not he should spin the chambers again before firing a second time. Should he spin again? Answer: Yes. Before he spins, there’s a one in six chance of a bullet being fired. After he spins, one of those chances has been taken away, leaving a one-in-five chance and making it more likely a bullet will be fired. Best to spin again.

14. The day before two days after the day before tomorrow is Saturday. What day is it today? Answer: Friday. The “day before tomorrow” is today; “the day before two days after” is really one day after. So if “one day after today is Saturday,” then it must be Friday.
15. Same situation, but two bullets are put in consecutive chambers. Should you tell the bad guy to spin the chambers again? Answer: No. With two bullets, you have two chances in six (or one in three) to get hit with a bullet before he fires the first time. Because we know the previous round was one of four empty chambers, that leaves four positions the gun could now be in, with only one followed by a bullet; therefore leaving you with a one in four chance the second round will fire. Since one in four is better odds than one in three, he shouldn’t spin again.

27. This one could also fall in the lying/truth category. A man is caught on the king’s property. He is brought before the king to be punished. The king says, “You must give me a statement. If it is true, you will be killed by lions. If it is false, you will be killed by the trampling of wild buffalo. If I can’t figure it out, I’ll have to let you go.” Sure enough, the man was released. What was the man’s statement? Answer: “I will be killed by trampling of wild buffalo.” This stumped the king because if it’s true, he’ll be killed by lions, which would render the statement not true. If it’s a lie, he’d be killed by wild buffalo, which would make it a truth. Since the king had no solution, he had to let the man go.
