- A man dies and arrives at the Pearly Gates of Heaven. He finds himself in a long corridor with two doors, and he knows that one leads to Heaven and one leads to Hell. However, he doesn’t know which is which! Sitting next to these two doors, at either end of the corridor, are two men: the truthful man and the liar. The liar is not deceitful, because he can’t help but lie when asked a question. However, the man can always rely on what the truthful man says. However, they look identical and he cannot tell which one is the liar and which one the truthful man. To find out which is the door to Heaven, he can ask either the man on the left or the man on the right just one question!
- A traveller comes to a fork in the road which leads to two villages. In one village the people always tell lies and in the other village the people always tell the truth.

From the man’s answer, he knows which road to follow.
- You are visiting an island on which two tribes of natives live. One tribe has black soles and always lies; the other tribe has white soles and always tells the truth. There are three natives standing near you. You can’t see the bottoms of their feet, and indeed you find out it is extremely rude to look at another’s soles, but you are curious so you ask the first man, “Sir, what colour are your soles?” Now he happens to understand English, but he can’t speak it, so he replies in his native tongue, “Glub Glub.” You turn to the second man and ask, “Sir, what did he say?” The second man replies, “He said he has white soles.” Now to be sure, you turn to the third and ask, “Sir, what colour soles does this second man have?” The third man replies, “Sir, he has black soles.” Now the question is, what colour are the third native’s soles?
