Okay let me try again,

Police takes the thief first. he came back & takes one son to other side.
Police & thief came back.
Mother & Father goes to other side. Father stays there.
Mother came back takes her first daughter.
Father & Mother both came back & mother takes her second daughter. Mother leaves her both daughters there & came back.
Now father & mother both goes & mother stays there with her 2 daughters & father takes his son back with him.
Police & thief goes to other side now.
Then mother came back & takes father.
Father came back & takes his first son with him.
Police came back with thief & takes the other son this time. Now 2 daughters, 2 sons, father & mother are at other side.
Police came back & takes the thief now.



Hope this is correct Logu Ji.....

Disregard my previos post..i misread your concern....to answer your question....Mother is never without father on the side with any son, she is always in the raft transferring the daughter and father....

That cannot happen as when mother goes to side 2 with daughter 2, she cannot stay with her sons. Hmmm, you got right till this step. How can daughter 2 be brought to the side 2?


No Doeesntmatter, you made a mistake in this step. When some one is moving from one side to other side, they get down after reaching the other side and then only back to raft. So in this case mother is with sons without Father's presence. So it's wrong. you just think of the other possible way for this step.

Download the file and then try. It tells you where you make mistake.

No Vaani Ji, you are wrong again.

When Mother comes back to side 1, son is there without Father's presence.

Clue : if you combine yours and Doesntmatter correctly, the puzzle will be solved.

Hi Logu,
Please read this carefully.
When mother is with son, one son is already on other side.
Father came back to side1 with his son1, then how come mother stays with son.


Solution:

Police takes the thief first. he came back & takes one son 1 to other side.
Police & thief came back & stays in side1
Mother & Father goes to other side(side2). Father stays there with his son1.
Mother came back takes her first daughter(daughter1). Daughter1 stays in side 2 with son1.
Father & Mother both came back & mother takes her second daughter. Mother leaves her both daughters there & came back.
Now father & mother both goes & mother stays there with her 2 daughters & father takes his son back with him.
Police & thief goes to other side now.
Then mother came back & takes father.
Father came back & takes his other son1 with him.
Police came back with thief & takes the other son(son2) this time. Now 2 daughters, 2 sons, father & mother are at other side.
Police came back & takes the thief now.

No Vaani. It's wrong.

1. Police takes the thief first. he came back & takes one son 1 to other side.
Side 1: Mother+2 daughters, Father +1 son Side 2: Police, thief, son - Correct
2. Police & thief came back & stays in side1
Side 1: Mother+2 daughters, Father +1 son , Police , thief Side 2: Son1 - Correct
3. Mother & Father goes to other side(side2). Father stays there with his son1.
Side 1: 2 daughters + 1 son + police thief Side 2: Father + 1 son.

Now, when Mother returns back, Son 2 is on the second side without Father's presence. Did you get it ?

To make it clear. Someone is not permanently stays on the raft, once they go to some side they get down and get back.

Hope it clears. Download the file and try it. It's more interactive.

Hey Darkload, you got it correct. Good work. But lot of credits to Doesntmatter for solving it almost 90%. Vaani and Rupa tried well.

Wait for another interesting puzzle. I also don't know the answer for the next puzzle :), so we all will try it together.

FAMOUS EINSTEIN PUZZLE :ohmy:

There are 5 houses in 5 different colors. In each house lives a person with a different nationality. The 5 owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet. No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar, or drink the same beverage.

The question is: Who owns the fish?

Hints:

* The Brit lives in the red house.
* The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
* The Dane drinks tea.
* The green house is on the left of the white house.
* The green homeowner drinks coffee.
* The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
* The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
* The man living in the center house drinks milk.
* The Norwegian lives in the first house.
* The man who smokes Blend lives next to the one who keeps cats.
* The man who keeps the horse lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
* The owner who smokes Bluemaster drinks beer.
* The German smokes prince.
* The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
* The man who smokes Blend has a neighbor who drinks water.

Einstein wrote this riddle early during the 19th century. He said 98% of the world could not solve it. So who is in the other 2% here ?

Let's start the discussion.
