Q:

A number of cats got together and decided to kill between them 999919 rats. Every cat killed an equal number of rats. Each cat killed more rats than there were cats. How many rats do you think that each cat killed ?

A) 1009 B) 991
C) 2000 D) 1000
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 1009

Explanation:

Given total number of rats = 999919

 

999919 = 1000000 - 81 = 10002 - 92 = (1000+9)(1000-9) = 1009 x 991.
Since there were more rats than there were cats, 991 cats killed 1009 rats each.

Q:

Logical puzzle

You work at a fruit factory.
There are 3 crates in front of you. One crate contains only apples. One crate contains only oranges. The other crate contains both apples and oranges. And each crate is labeled. One reads "apples", one reads "oranges", and one reads "apples and oranges". But the labeling machine has gone crazy and is now labeling all boxes incorrectly. If you can only take out and look at just one of the pieces of fruit from just one of the crates, how can you label ALL of the crates correctly?

Answer

Our solution:


Take a piece of fruit from the "apples and oranges" crate. If it's an apple then you know that is the "apples" crate since ALL THE CRATES ARE LABELED INCORRECTLY. This means the crate marked "apples" must be "oranges" and the crate marked "oranges" must be "apples and oranges".
