Sample Question #93 (brainteaser)
The last case question about Heaven and Hell from p. 153 of my book.
The answer is actually not hard. The guy just asks "if I ask the other angel where his gate leads to, what would he tell me?" If he asks the truth-telling angel, the angel would say "Heaven." If he asks the lying angel, the latter would answer "Hell."
The question gets more complicated if the guy doesn’t know which gate each of the two angels guards. In that case, can you figure out what question he should ask? (Hint: the question should be formed this way so that he can figure out both who the good angel is and what gate the answering angel is guarding!)
