Actually, the nine dots problem can be done in three lines Nanayaranaraknas Vahdam · 3 years ago

@Nanayaranaraknas Vahdam But it can't be done in 3 lines without lifting off the pencil. Satvik Golechha · 3 years ago

@Sharky Kesa If you show me how to join those 9 dots with just 4 straight lines without lifting the pencil, assuming the dots to be of no length and breadth, I'll give you a chocolate. I think you're making two parallel lines meet at infinity....... Satvik Golechha · 3 years ago

@Satvik Golechha Not at infinity but a long distance. It is slanted but this slant touches the points. Sharky Kesa · 3 years ago

@Sharky Kesa Oh! I see. But then you are considering the points to have a positive length or breadth, which is against their definition......... Satvik Golechha · 3 years ago

If there were \(3\) birds sitting on the branch of a tree, and a shooter shoots one of them, then how many remain? This question needs some serious voting........ Satvik Golechha · 3 years ago

@Satvik Golechha @Satvik Golechha My answer would be '0' birds. When the hunter shoots one of them, the sound of the gun would scare the birds away. The killed bird would then fall down. Ritu Roy · 3 years ago

@Ritu Roy There can be some brave birds or the birds can be deaf(if there are birds who are deaf ;)) Kartik Sharma · 3 years ago

@Satvik Golechha Option C- All three. Satvik Golechha · 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Satvik Golechha Yes, the answer is 'all three' because you asked "how many remain", not "how many remain alive" or "how many remain dead". As the body(although dead) is there, this is the answer, I suppose. Kartik Sharma · 3 years ago

@Kartik Sharma Yup!! In fact, from three different point of views, all three options can be proved correct....maybe I should make a fourth option 'All of these'. Satvik Golechha · 3 years ago

@Satvik Golechha Hey, I have just got a "5th" option after "all of these" and it says "Not even a single bird remain". This is because the question says "3 birds sitting on the branch", so they could be sitting one after another in a row and hence, when the shooter shoots "one of them", the first one in the row. The bullet speed was so fast that it penetrated the 1st one, then the 2nd one and then the 3rd(just like the 'plank' question). So, the answer can also be NOT EVEN A SINGLE BIRD. This is awesome, one statement, 5(or even more) answers!!!! Kartik Sharma · 3 years ago

@Kartik Sharma Gosh!! This is getting crazy...... Satvik Golechha · 3 years ago

@Satvik Golechha All three because the shooter shoots 'one of them', not one of the birds. Sharky Kesa · 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Sharky Kesa Superb!! English is a crazy language. There's ambiguity everywhere, but let us assume for the sake of the question that 'them' refers to the birds...... Satvik Golechha · 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Satvik Golechha How many 'what' remain? Does what refer to the shooter, the birds, the branches of the tree, etc.? Sharky Kesa · 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Sharky Kesa The birds, of course. Had it been anythin' except the birds, would the question make sense~? Satvik Golechha · 3 years ago

@Satvik Golechha How many birds remain dead or alive? Sharky Kesa · 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Sharky Kesa Forget it..... If I say 'How many remain alive', then you're gonna ask How many remain alive on the tree or off the tree. You're not gonna leave this question flawless! Satvik Golechha · 3 years ago

@Satvik Golechha Oh! I thought the answer is "if I have added them" Kartik Sharma · 3 years ago

@Kartik Sharma Woah!!! Super Duper awesome.........Getting amazing answers....... :H Satvik Golechha · 3 years ago

@Satvik Golechha Why you wrote 2 and 2 add upto 3. I understood that 2 remain so you wrote it, but what about the other one Tushar Malik · 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Tushar Malik @Tushar Malik If you're asking about the question you commented on, them it is for you to find out how it is possible. If I write the answer, others won't be able to enjoy. If you still want the answer, mail me. But I think you've got mixed up.....I have posted 2 different puzzles, note that they're on different longitudes (or possible latitudes)...-o: Satvik Golechha · 3 years ago
