Each Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain. If you are stumped, share it with a friend or colleague and see if you can figure out the answer together.
Leave your answer in the comment section. I’ll approve responses later in the day to give people a chance to respond without seeing any spoilers.
This week’s brain teaser:
There are four prisoners and they will be freed if one of them correctly guesses the color of the hat on his head. They can’t speak to each other, turn around or take their hat off.
Prisoner number 1 can see number 2 and 3’s hats. Number 2 can see number 3’s hat. Number 3 sees only a wall. Number 4 sees nobody. They know there are 2 black hats and 2 white hats and there are four prisoners. Which prisoner shouts, “I know the color of my hat” and how was the prisoner able to solve the riddle?
