You are trapped in a prison and the guard decides to play a game. If you win, you will be allowed to leave. But if you lose, you die. The guard says that he is thinking of number 1, number 2, or number 3. You are allowed to ask one question to find out which of these three numbers the guard has in mind. However, the guard will only answer with a “yes”, “no”, or “I don’t know”. What should you say to the guard?
As ever, please feel free to say if you think you have a solution and how long it took, but please do NOT post your answers. Solution on Monday. Have a good weekend!
