Intelligence Contest

Today is November 17, 2018

Welcome to the first Intelligence Contest.

You have 25 Minutes to complete the 5 questions that will follow. You must write your answer in the box provided before moving on to the next question.

A winner will be announced each week. Each week's winner will get a challenging brain game.

1) Once upon a time there was a kingdom. A king and a lord lived in this kingdom. Unfortunately they hated each other so they agreed that they will poison each other one day.

There are only twelve vials of poison in whole kingdom and they are locked in one chamber in the castle.

The poisons have numbers from 1 to 12. The higher the number the stronger the poison. Effect on human body is simple – you drink the poison, you die. Each stronger poison neutralizes all weaker poisons which means that poison 12 neutralizes all poisons, number 11 all poisons but 12 etc. (If you drink 11 and than 12 nothing happens. If you drink 12 and than 11 you die.)

The king enters the chamber with poisons first and takes all the even poisons (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12). Than the lord enters and takes the rest. They meet in the throne hall where each fills one cup and hands it over to the other who immediately drinks it. Now each fills the cup once again, now for himself, and drinks it (hoping to save his own life).

What did the lord do that he woke up the second morning but the king was dead?
Can I get a hint ?

2) Some pieces of coal, a carrot and a scarf are lying on the lawn. Nobody put them on the lawn but there is a perfectly logical reason why they should be there. Can you explain please ?Can I get a hint ?

3) Group of friends is trapped in a burning house. The house is going to collapse in 12 minutes so they desperately want to get out. They have to run through a hallway which is in flames. If someone wants to pass through he has to have a fire extinguisher to hold the flames back at least a little. Problem is that the friends have only one.

Only two people can go at once. Than somebody has to return with the extinguisher and other two can go.

There is one fireman among the friends who moves through flames with ease and he can ran through the hallway in one minute. His best friend who is in great shape can run through in 2 minutes. There is an older man who needs four minutes and a drunken guy who will need 5 minutes to pass through. If two people go together they move at speed of the slower one.

How will they do it so that they all get out before the house collapses?
Can I get a hint ?

4) Evil warlock doesn't like jesters so he chooses four of them and buries them into the ground so that only their heads are above surface. Jesters can't move at all and they can look only forward.

They're buried in a line and one of them is separated by a wall.

They are all facing the same direction: Last jester sees two heads of his friends and a wall. Second last sees only one head and a wall. Second jester from the front, sees only the wall. The first jester is looking into the distance where he can see nobody and nothing interesting.

Warlock explains the situation to jesters and tells them that he has placed hats on their heads - two blue hats and two red ones.

If any of these jesters correctly says the color of the hat he himself is wearing, then the warlock will dig them out immediately. But if the first answer given by any one of them turns out to be incorrect then all of them will stay buried for ever....

So only that jester should speak who is confident of the answer or else should stay quiet. Can any of these jesters find a solution to this problem and rescue them all ?
Can I get a hint ?

5) A man is lying awake in bed. Suddenly, he makes a phone call, says nothing, and goes to sleep.  Mysterious, isn't it? Can you think, why ? Can I get a hint ?
