Hi all,

Below is a simple logical puzzle which i came across recently. There were 3 Greek philosophers, walking together having a discussion about “Why does anything exist?”.

As they got tired, they decided to take some nap under a tree. Once they r asleep, 3 owls came and dropped shit on each philosophers head and flew away with some noise, which made them all awake.

By seeing other two of them, all philosophers started laughing.  But one smart philosopher stopped laughing abruptly, realizing the fact.

How did he found out?

Sorry if its silly, but i found the answer interesting 🙂

Good Day!

Friends, the one u can see below is a puzzle designed by Google. It almost killed me wen i tried to solve, and unfortunately i could’nt solve. But the answer is pretty interesting. Pls break ur heads to reach the answer :).

A duck, pursued by a fox, escapes to the center of a perfectly circular pond. The fox cannot swim, and the duck cannot take flight from the water (it’s a deficient duck). The fox is four times faster than the duck. Assuming the fox and duck pursue optimum strategies, is it possible for the duck to reach the edge of the pond and fly away without being eaten? If so, how?

Cube2A corporate businessman has two cubes on his office desk.

Every day he arranges both cubes  so that the front faces show the current day of the month.

What numbers are on the faces of the cubes to allow this?Note: You can’t represent the day “7″ with a single cube with a side that says 7 on it.

You have to use both cubes all the time. So the 7th day would be “07″.

Mail me if u hav ny doubt. I will publish the answer asap.
