    You see a boat filled with people, yet there isn’t a single person on board. How is that possible?

    There is a word in the English language where the first two letters signify a male, the first 3 letters a female, the first 4 a great man, and the whole word a great woman.

    What is the word?

    You reach a fork in the road. A sign explains that in one direction is Heaven and the other is Hell. Each path is blocked by a Guard. The sign goes on to say that one of the guards will always lie and the other will always tell the truth, it does not say which guard is which. We assume that the guards do know which path leads to where.

    You may ask one question of only one guard in order that you can determine, with certainty, the way to Heaven. What is that question?

    Where would your brother say I must go?

    It will always be the wrong answer so choose the other one.

    Only with the assumption that the one guard knows the status of the other.
