    Little riddle for you all.... the 1st one to get it right gets rep

    Inside a room is a light bulb. Outside are three switches in the off position. There is no way to see into the room without opening the door. How do you work out which switch turns the light on? You can fiddle with the switches as much as you like, but you're only allowed to open the door to the room once.

    first correct answer gets rep..... pls don't google

    not the right answer

    look through the cracks round the door and frame as turning the switches on and off to look for the faint light

    Turn on switch 1, leave it on for 1 hour. One hour later, turn it off. … Turn on switch 1, leave it on for 1 hour. One hour later, turn it off. Turn switch 2 on, then walk in. If the light is on, it is switch 2; if it is not on, then you feel the light bulb, if it is hot, it is the switch that was previously on, which was switch 1, if the light bulb is cold then the first switch did nothing, leaving switch 3.:)



    ahhh you absolute gorgeous clever lady :thumbsup: tho you only need to leave the 1st switch for about 5 mins before it will get hot ;-)

    Don't leave it for an hour, 2 mins would be enough, otherwise it's cold and then you wouldn't be sure if it was 1 or 3 (assuming switch 2 was not on). :thumbsup:
