Interview Puzzles Practice Set 22
Question :: 1
An innocent person is accused of a murder in a village. The head of the village knows that the man is innocent but he also knows that the truth may be uncovered one day that his own son is the murderer. Just to hinder the attention of people, he offers a chance to the man. In a jar, he places two chits of paper – one reads innocent and the other reads guilty. Among all the other villagers, he asks the accused person to pick up a chit. He says that their almighty god is watching them and the person will meet his fate truthfully with the chit.
Of course, the village head is cheating. He has put both chits with Guilty written on them. The accused person somehow suspects the same. But no one will believe him if he tries to expose the head. Also, he knows no one will look at the other chit once his fate is decided by his selected chit.
What should he do to prove that he is innocent?
