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.

Is Smith lying?

The policeman knew from the very beginning that Smith was lying because of frost forms on the inner side of a window and not on the outer side. This clearly means that Smith did not wipe the frost off and he cooked up a false story so the policeman took him into custody.

8Two pills

A person abducts other people and gives them the choice of having one pill from the two. He tells everyone that one pill is harmless while the other one is poisonous and whichever the victim chooses, he will take the other one. However, every time the victim loses his life while the abductor is absolutely fine.

Can you tell why nothing happens to abductor or how did he get the harmless pill every time?

The truth about the pills

Both the pills appear to be the same in shape, size, and color so there’s no chance that the abductor can differentiate between them and even if he could, the victim got the opportunity to choose first so it’s crystal clear that both the pills were absolutely harmless every time; however, the poison was in the water which the victim used to consume with the pill.

9Where is the money gone?

A $100 bill was kept by the house owner on the table before he left for work but when he returned, the bill was nowhere. The three people whom he suspected were maid, cook and the electrician.

He asked the cook about the bill, the cook said that he put it under the book so that it doesn’t get lost. When the maid was asked the same question, she said that she placed the bill in the book between the pages 10 and 11. When the electrician was asked about the bill, he said that he saw it coming out so he put it safely between the pages 11 and 12.

The house owner understood who stole the $100 bill. Can you tell who the thief is?

A little common sense will get you the answer

The electrician has stolen the bill because the owner checked the bill between the pages 10 and 11. This means that pages 11 and 12 are on the opposite sides of a single sheet. Therefore, there’s no chance that the $100 bill can be kept between pages 11 and 12.
