Sticky Post : An IQ Question

Sticky IQ



Here's a quick question for you to rack your brains with...


There are 2 identical treasure chests that are guarded by 2 identical looking guards. One chest contains gold, the other, only rocks. One of the guards will always tell the truth, the other will always tell a lie. But you don't know which is which. By asking only 1 question to either of the guards, how can u determine which chest is the one with the booty?


Let's all rattle our brains and try to guess the answer. The answer will be revealed on Monday's post if nobody has got it right by then. Good luck guessing!

3 bored people said something about this

"If I asked the other guard which chest contains gold, which would he point to?"
The truthtelling guard knows the other guard is bound to lie, so he, telling truly the other's action, points to the rocks.
The Lying guard knows the truth teller would point to the true gold...and this guard always lies, so he points to the other.
Therefore the gold will always be in the chest not pointed to.

I never would have guessed wasp trap although I made a similar trap out out a pop bottle. It did trap wasps that entered the trap, but not all the wasps chose to enter the trap. Thanks for the reminder to check your answer.
