Two Guards:
You are a prisoner in a room with two doors and two guards. One door leads to certain death, the other to certain freedom. You may ask one question of one guard. You know that one guard always tells the truth and the other guard always lies, but you don't know which is which. What do you do? What ONE (only one question allowed) question can you ask to be sure of getting the door to freedom ?

No :roll:

Ask one "If he was the other guard, which door would he tell you to take."
The answer is always the lie, you take the other one.
#4
Just wait until the end of the shift then look what door they go through and you have your answer!

So use the question to keep you amused while you wait!

Sorry I'll get my goat! Sorry coat!

But the one who tells the truth would tell you the one that you should not go through and the one who lies will tell you the one you should go through so you would not have your answer that way.
As already mentioned you should just ask what the other guard would tell you is the right door and the answer will be wrong so you take the other door.
