Enigma of the 2 guards

6 posts in this topic

You are a prisoner in a room with 2 doors and 2 guards. One of the doors will guide you to freedom and behind the other is a hangman --you don't know which is which.

One of the guards always tells the truth and the other always lies. You don't know which one is the truth-teller or the liar either.

You have to choose and open one of these doors, but you can only ask a single question to one of the guards.

What do you ask so you can pick the door to freedom ?

Which door would the other guard appoint if I ask him which door leads to freedom?

Both guards would in this case point to the door with the hangman, so you should just take the other door.
