1The mystery of Christmas

It was the early morning of 25th December, the Christmas, when a policeman rang the doorbell of a house. After some time, the owner opened the door and it could be made out by looking at him that he was sleeping. The policeman says to the owner that his neighbor has alleged that on the Christmas Eve, which means yesterday when he was celebrating Christmas at your home, you broke into his house and stole some valuable belongings.

The owner replied that the neighbor is lying about the whole thing as he with his family celebrated Christmas Eve at his friend’s place. In fact, they didn’t even have time to decorate their Christmas tree properly. The policeman was also convinced that the owner is telling the truth and the neighbor is lying and he told the owner that there is nothing for him to worry.

2The poisonous drinks at a restaurant

A man and woman went to have dinner at a restaurant and after ordering the dishes, they asked for 5 glasses of iced drinks as it was too hot. The woman had 4 glasses of iced drinks quickly while the man drank his drink slowly. After some time, the man felt ill and passed away. As per the doctors, each drink had poison in it.

The question arises that when all the drinks were poisoned, why there was no effect on the woman despite the fact that she drank four drinks but the man who had only one drink, passed away.

The case solved

There was no poison in the drink but actually, the ice was poisonous. As the man drank in a leisurely mood, the ice melted in his drink and he consumed poison. On the other hand, the woman drank quickly and hence ice didn’t get time to melt. Consequently, she was saved.
