|What question can you never answer?
What’s it like to be dead?
|Two brothers have developed differences among themselves and thus want to part ways. The problem is that they have one big land that is irregular in shape. Both of them want an equal share which is fairly impossible as there is no way that land could be divided in equal halves due to irregularity in the shape.
The wisest man of the village is called who tells a way in which both of them will be happy even though the land might not be divided into exactly equal halves.
What way did he suggest?
He simply suggested that one of the brothers will be allowed to divide the land but he must take into consideration that it will be the other one who will have a choice of selecting his land between the two halves first.
Thus both will be happy in such manner.
|A girl liked to collect money in a piggy bank. She bought pink colored piggy bank when she was 10 years old. She put $250 in the box on each of her birthdays. Her younger sister took $50 out of her piggy bank on her birthday. The girl died when she was 50 years old due to an incurable disease.
When the piggy bank was opened, it had just $500, and no one else had touched it.
How can that be possible?
The girl was born on 29 February. Thus her birthday came once in four years only while her sister was born on a normal day and celebrated her birthday every year. Thus the girl had a chance of depositing money only 10 times in 4 years through which she collected $2500 while her sister took $50 from the piggy bank every year making the total amount to be $2000. Thus when the piggy bank was opened, it had just $500.
